    Default Li Ling Wei coming to the Bay Area

    Hi All,
    Just want to inform that the SJSU Summer Camp 2002 sponsored by Badminton Alley will invite Li Ling Wei to become one of the head coach. The training started from July 8 until July 26, 2002. The price is very good, $205 for 3 weeks training Monday-Friday.

    For more information, check out using the URL below.

    Hope the information is useful.

    (this belongs to "places to play")

    thanks David.

    so is Li Ling Wei *definitely* coming? it sounds uncertain. and Prof. Chen said she will confirm after the TC/UC.

    Default She is coming for sure!

    Kwun,
    I need to update the website. However, I am busy right now. The Bay Area Junior Open (BAJO) now has approximately 300 players participating and we are making sure that the tournament will run smoothly. Hope to update it during on this coming Monday.

    David,

    I'm very interested. Just a few questions on the details:

    + Would Li be there every day, for 2 hours, for the full 15 days?
    + I assume everyone in the class would have equal access of her time,
    am I correct?
    + What's the class size limit you've in mind?
    + May I register at Badminton Alley in person, if I decide to join in?
    + Could you tell us a bit more about Charlie Song (e.g. where he was
    trained, for how long, what level of tournaments he plays in etc.)

    I look forward to your reply.
    Thanks,
    Raymond

    Badminton is very bad in North America.... when mentioned (to people who don't play badminton) ... they think of it as a backyard sport.

    In canada, hockey and basketball dominates...

    No one watches canadian football or baesball though hehe... simply cause we suck at football and baseball (football as in american football.. not soccer)

    I actually think badminton is quite popular here in Canada at the recreational and "fun" level. I mean, reading from previous posts, many of the clubs in Toronto are usually full with many people having to sit off. Now, if we talk about popularity in terms of competitive play, then badminton is truly lacking in N.A. I read in a book that there's supposedly something like 11 million americans who claimed they play badminton recreationally every week but there's probably less than 25 000 competitive players.
