I really think they should have a stand with a large post (16 by 22) that says badminton shoes only area. So ignorant people won't just go on and do wutever.

    Pisses me off when neubs go on with some nike or addidas basketball shoes and tear it up in there.
    Sorry if I offended you in any way asking if I could play on the courts using running shoes since I'm waiting for my package with my badminton shoe. Would SG 2 have non yonex court? I don't want to ruin the nice Yonex court.

    The ProShop will not be open yet as it's still being rennovated. Panda will be there and will bring some shuttles.

    love they gym so far. looks very spacious. some people have their complains like court being a little too close and a bit different from sgvbc1 where there's a wall separating every 2 courts and therefore having better "perception" and also the lights but I think it is great so far of course as usual, my complain is the flooring but i think i'm getting used to it already and can jump off the ground a little now. love the locker room. very spacious but i think it could use a couple of curtains and maybe some clothes hanger for ppl in shower. also the only toilet the locker i think needs a door. no idea what woman's locker is like. since everything is still in the process, from the looks, everything will turn out just great.

    Thanks Panda for the shuttles. I forgot to get like 3 or 4 more tubes before I left =.= stupid me... i didn't take pictures because I was scared my camera would be stolen when i saw the amount of people there but those pictures posted about the courts are accurate (imagine ppl in there and u get my picture )

    I was also there and I can say I love it. I was there right when it open and its really nice. I didn't really go to the locker xD I just went striaght to the courts :P. It's funny how after you finish a match you clap with everyone and then you get that tiny electric shock xD because of the surface XP.
