ClearTwo Doubles Exhibition feat. Tony Gunawan & Howard Bach [USA]
There will be an exhibition held Friday night, July 31st, at ClearTwo Badminton Centre in Richmond. Although the details here are preliminary, the exhibition will consist of 5 matches, probably a Womens Doubles, a Mixed Doubles, two Mens Doubles, and a 3 vs 3 Mens Doubles.
Players in the exhibition will include Tony Gunawan [USA], Howard Bach [USA], William Milroy [CAN], Toby Ng [CAN], Lee Haeng Ham [KOR], Derrick Ng [CAN], Fiona McKee [CAN], and likely other Canadians including Tommy Mckee, Kevin Li, and some other unconfirmed players.
The reason for the exhibition is to support some of the local athletes competing at the 2009 World Championships in India, as there is no financial support from Badminton Canada. The cost for the exhibition should be about $10 (unconfirmed) and tickets can be purchased at ClearOne or ClearTwo Badminton Centre.
I will try to update the information accordingly. Hope to see you all there!

Here is the official poster. It will be something like a Canada vs. World exhibition. Please note that tickets are $12 (not $10 from the previous post).

Its the new International coach at ClearTwo. He was one of the players who came for the Team BC vs. Team Jiang Su exhibitions in 2007.

Here is something from the forum for those who remember:
And of course, Tony and Howard, who recently demolished everyone at the US Open will definitely put on a show

That seems a bit confusing because when I saw China in the poster, I assume it would be a player from the China National Team, ie. Fu Hai Feng.
If these folks were here, it would be add more weight to make it worth watching.

Okay, I think I have a rough format for the exhibition. It will be roughly this format:
3 v 3 Doubles (Intro)
Not sure if that is the order, but there will not be any WS or WD.

Not everything has been finalized, but there are a few that will be very likely:
3v3 Doubles - Tony/Howard/Lee vs. Will/Toby/Derrick [1 set to 21]
XD - Lee/Melody vs. Will/Fiona [Full match]
MD - Tony/Howard vs. Will/Toby [Full match]
Also, it is likely that Jacky [CHN] will be playing the singles.

I must apologize, but I just found out that tickets will be increased to $15 on Friday. So if you buy at anytime on Friday, you will have to pay an extra $3. Please try to get your tickets today!! Call in or visit the centre to get your tickets for $12. Sorry again for the short notice, but I only found out a moment ago. Hope you all have your tickets already!
