Taufik Hidayat in TO Dec. 27
Taufik Hidayat, the 2004 Olympic Men's Singles Gold medalist and some of Canada's 2008 Olympic team will be playing exhibition matches at Humber college (in Toronto) Dec. 27th.
Just wanted to put it out there if anyone's wanting live badminton over the holidays. :P

any more info? time? i've been to humber before.. need to pay?
10-18-2008, 09:36 PM #3
I know from my friend the ticket will be $20 at the door
10-18-2008, 09:42 PM #4
Yes, some more info would be great!

There's a PDF flyer here: http://www.ontariobadminton.on.ca/cl...12&y=2008&id=1 (at the bottom)
and info here: http://www.badmintonbirds.com/BITE/
**Note: The times are a bit confusing. One site says 6-10pm, another says 7-10pm, and the TICKET & flyer say 7-9pm. I will double check and get back with info about that. I suspect that the 9-10pm window might be time for a bit of socializing etc., and it might be a "doors open" at 6pm policy - but the event officially goes from 7-9pm. Again, I'll confirm ASAP.
Tickets are $20 at the door as garry mentioned. I have tickets at $15 if anyone wants some. http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...ad.php?t=61728

Does anyone know if Taufiq is playing singles, or just doubles? This question is both for the Exhiibition and in the Toronto Open.

11-03-2008, 05:44 PM #9
appearance fee not high enough
11-03-2008, 05:59 PM #10
yup, Taufik will not be playing in Toronto Open. Hariawan Hariawan will probably play in it though.
11-03-2008, 06:07 PM #11
clarification please, would TH be at the exhibition matches at Humber college ??
toronto open and exhibition matches are not the same
11-04-2008, 12:05 AM #12
Hm....last I heard was that he will indeed play in the Toronto open...? Can anyone confirm wether or not he is?
11-04-2008, 12:15 AM #13
He's confirmed to play Exhibition matches at Humber.
Not sure if he will play TO Open.
11-04-2008, 12:11 PM #14
maybe he's afraid of losing to some under-dog players from Ontario or viewers from this forum:-)
regardless, i'll still go and watch all 3 days of TO Open. No international stars (not included retired ones) appeared in past years but it's been and will still be an amazing event!
