    I wanted to allow Kwun to share photos with BCers even though the club is still a work in progress. For this reason, I originally did not want Kwun to take any photos. So many people have been "waiting" to see BBC. The lines and courts that you see in the photo are still in their raw stage. The company still has to come back and finish the detail work. Perhaps Kwun's hi-tech panoramic photo lens makes the ceiling look lower than it actually is. Please be patient folks, BBC is almost done.

    ..the court color is interesting and yeah the courts do remind me a bit of the tennis clay courts..I assume this will be the first full-time badminton facililty in California or the U.S., for that fact, which uses a red-colored badminton court??...
    And will there be some kind of a colored background drops/nettings/screens in between/at back of each courts??..
    *Thanks Ben and kwun for allowing and sharing the pic for us..

    apology for confusion caused by the photo. firstly it is a panorama stitched together from a few photos so the lines turned out a bit not straight. secondly work is still being done so don't read too much into the texture of the floor.

    what you should see is that the color is different and the scale of it is massive!

    It is definitely very big. Quite impressive! What is the spacing between the courts? It is hard to tell from the picture. And can someone from BBC comment on the height of the gym? Would you be able to host national tournaments?
