    Default What will happen to Smash City?

    I'll call it a rumor but everyone there is already talking about it.

    The "rumor" is Smash City will shutdown at the end of February for a month of renovation. Then, it will reopen in April under new management. Staffs and management aren't giving any detail or assurance after this month.

    Anyone knows anything that can share? If the above "rumor" is not true, I hope the owners would speak up and put the "rumor" to bed.

    Default Smash City facility will become BBC

    its not a rumor, its a fact. Smash City will close at the end of March. BBC will take over the lease and will renovate the facility. It will surely install computerized queuing system so the players don't have to play badminton match and at the same time serve as a human queueing machine to remember whos next in line to play in the court.

    yeah man its true. I'm happy and sad at the same time. I'm sad that there will be no more smash city, but I'm happy that the place is being renovated. The courts and lighting were getting really bad there. I hope they add spring floors like bintang.

    That is what I heard too except to close at the end of February. I call it a "rumor" since neither Smash City nor BBC have confirmed this. There were a thread on this since December, http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...ad.php?t=78788

    Personally, I welcome this news since Smash City has fallen to disrepair and basic clean up. If it looks anything like BBC1, especially the floor, it would be a huge upgrade.

    Having said that, I do wish the current/new owners to provide some assurance in regard to training, membership, existing passes, etc. While they are shutdown, people will look for other places to train/play and they might not return. I want BBC to succeed in this location because I live around here, but the competition will get tougher with new California Badminton Academy is only 7 miles away. Come on, do something and say something to assure your customers.

    i have also heard the same.

    it is good for both Holvy and Bintang. Bintang will have a even stronger team with Holvy, and Holvy will have less job uncertainty as a result.

    That's good for Bintang. The Campbell gym should be getting more students with Holvy coaching there along with private lessons requests from open gym members.

    Sounds like you guys are in the knows. Any insight into what will happen when everything is settled? Would BBC honor membership, existing 10-passes card, etc?

    Do you have troubles getting your membership refund from SmashCity?
    Also, as you know they're shutting down for the last few months, I'd think
    you should have enough time to use up your passes. There shouldn't be
    anything left for BBC to honor...

    Question

    The paper in another thread says that Smash city will be moving to a new location. If it is true, why they let Holvy go ???
    I also heard this from other people and some said the new place might also be just for training?
    I am not sure what to listen to anymore :-(

    Anymore information on this?

    People work there do not know or willing to say or do anything. There were still selling those passes when I brought mine not too long ago. And I was injured and couldn't play.

    It is official that today is the last day for SC. I felt a little sad that it closed down, maybe since I played there for a while.

    Just wondering where all the people who used to play there will play for the next month or two?

    Will you come back to BBC once it re-open in May?
    Anyone knows what the membership fees will be for the new BBC?
    Any promotions?

    Please share.

    From what I know, most Smash City elite members will go to GGBC to train with Raju Rai and Howard Bach. Some are going to transfer to Bintang Campbell once Holvy gets there.

    The membership fees for BBC is I think $40 for anyone under 21 and $60 for anyone above 21.

    I too am a little sad to see Smash City goes. That is and always be a cool name canti is right. That place desperately needs repair. Been to BBC once so I am sure it will be an upgrade. Do look forward to playing at the new BBC3. Will most likely come back but will depend on where my friends go, of course
