    OK some pics from today's practice session. As hauge said, the players weren't very happy with the court. Joachim had practiced in the earlier session so no pics of him.

    Last pic - is when they found a deformity on the court and decided to pack it in. Oops, what happened here? Lost the pics. I'll try again

    ..too hard?? meaning, not soft for landing??..is it concrete underneath the blue carpet & playing mat?..maybe they can add another layer or two of carpet..

    ..i can see the playing mat is a bit crumpled near the edges, in the last pic (post #90) and first pic (post #94); perhaps they set it up in a hurry??..

    Thanks, madbad, for snapping the pics. Looking ahead for more.
    Hey, you should've gotten on the court and played with Taufik; you know to receive a couple of his hard backhand smashes..

    I notice Wiempie (in white & blue shirt); looks like he's gained a few lbs.
    Notice Anggun in red shirt, too.
    Who's the other gentleman playing next to Andre?

    ..i guess it's a small one, not really noticeable from the pic..

    madbad, hope there's enough lighting in the hall, come the evening of the event. I notice there's plenty of sunlight coming in from the window, thus it helped in taking the pics.

    The venue is not really suited to badminton. Visibility is poor and the lighting was certainly not designed for it. They used a corner of the Oval (it's massive) and put up temporary bleachers around the court for this event. As for photos, let see if they provide more even lighting on the day itself. The construction crew were still finalizing things as the players practiced. I took pics from both sides and one was darker while the sunlight from the other side played havoc with my settings.

    Do you know how many seats are provided??
    *Ah, i just realized there are windows facing the players. No wonder you took most of the pics facing the sides of the court. But then it'll be dark/night time when the event occurs, so you'll be able to take it from the back line sides.
