that's a good layout. better than the old Smashcity layout even though it is less spacious. the old layout is less efficient and the side courts always have visibility issues.
the quality of the floor will be consistent with other BBC's which is great.
thanks goodness they replaced the old sodium lights. however, from the number of lights present, i think CBA will retain the crown for the best and brightest lit club in the bay area.

How about the air conditioning in BBC3? I remembered it was quite hot inside during the summer when it was 100 degree outside.

Actually, I just visited the long awaited BBC 3 just tonight. The floors are amazing, some of the best I've seen thus far in the South Bay, and the lighting is competent at the least. It was really exciting seeing the new layout, which is quite different from that of Smash City. There is now one more court added to the playing area. Outside the gym, a new pro shop has been added, in which I've heard a sale will happen tomorrow. Overall, the gym is very beautiful in my opinion, as the dark red courts are nicely contrasted to the bright green area around each court, making it easier to see your boundaries.
It was exciting to get this awesome sneak preview of a great badminton gym, and go check it out yourselves :-)

BBC 3 in Milpitas is a great place to play Badminton. BBC management had given us an opportunity to play Friday evening at BBC3 while some work was still being done..
The Floors, Lightings and atmosphere are great. Some folks raised concerned about Poles between the courts and after playing extensively at the new BBC3 we did not find any issues. Ventilation is great tooo.. I specially like the colors of court and walls they all are very well done...
Its really amazing how BBC3 Management executed the work by building the whole facility in less than 30days..
Its really great to see a brand new Badminton Facility to open in San Jose.
BBC3 Is now open over weekend and nextweek..for play..(Pls call and verify)

I did not like bbc3. I thought they would add in spring flooring like bintang but they didnt. They're queing system was not good. You were not able to sign off on a court, and if u didnt not sign in for about an hour or so ur login would be no longer valid. The bbc team also took up lots of space, 4-5 courts for training. overall i would say skip bbc and go to bintang campbell.

To me, there's always some sort of adjustment when play at new facility. I recall when Bintang Sunnyvale was opened many years ago, players try to adjust the uneven floor and the drift on the challenge court which is right next to the garage door, don't even mention about fighting fiercely to stay on the court since it's always crowded as it was the only full badminton facility in town. Then came the Smash City, I got injured because I didn't stretch out properly with the harder floor on the first month. I adjusted and played basically injury free for the remaining of the 5 years.
Bintang Sunnyvale has improved greatly when I visited last month during Smash City transition to BBC3. Typically master Phu style, deserve lots of credit.
Thus far, I have played 2 times at BBC3, I think it's great and once again there is adjustment need to be make as Smash City didn't have electronics queuing system. I think BBC3 floor is just fine after my second trial out.
Badminton gym is more territorial so BBC3 will attract mostly residents surrounding Milpitas/North Valley/South Fremont and I am starting to see many older timers(former Smash City players) coming back last week. I am sure when CBA is ready then most of the Fremont residents will find that convenient for them also.
I think Bay Area residents are a bit spoil
