    Replacement rumor is it true or its going to be another Bintang-5?
    Based on current crowd's(open gym + trainings) at all Bintang's they will need Bintang5. Sunnyvale/Campbell's are very crowded. Hopefully with Bintang-5 coming up it will ease up the crowd and we all can spend more time on court than waiting at mercy of the QUEUE SYSTEMS!!

    make no sense for it to be replacement of sunnyvale. leases are usually 5 or 10 yrs. bintang sunnyvale opened in 2004, ie. 6 yrs into the lease.

    Any particular day(s) of the week and time of the day? Less people is a good opportunity for practices.

    I dropped by around 3:30 p.m. Lots of people there - all courts were filled, with people waiting.

    Eventhough there might not be a lot of badminton enthusiasts in that region. Maybe open a mid-size club with no more than 10-12 courts or less??..

    ..i thought the more competitions there are, the cheaper the prices would be??..or i was thinking, maybe all of the clubs in that area should pool-up and make 1 big entity so everyone will have equal access to all the clubs for the same price. And each club will share the same amt of profit...you know, just like the philosophy of the current U.S. govt...
    I agree with the Northern Bay Area suggestion.
    Since the Santa Rosa Asian population has increased dramatically over these past 4 years. Also, I have quite a few colleagues who played in their badminton teams in Petaluma high schools. Yes, all of those of my colleagues are white/Caucasians and they enjoyed playing badminton!
    There is a Santa Rosa badminton team that plays once a week, in a high school community open gym. If anyone remembers, they had a club match with the old GGBC team.
    Heres their website: http://www.worldbadminton.com/srbc/

    35,930 sq ft means approximately 20 courts depending on density and layout pattern.

    i do hope that it will be fewer courts with more space than more courts all cramped together. with the increasing number of club so close together now, the quality of service is more important than quantity. i really like the Bintang Campbell layout as it provides a lot of sitting space right next to the court, friends can hang out and chat instead of all sardined together into one sitting area.

    good to see another Bintang Club coming across at Milpitas.. now with one more club in this area is going to reduce the over-crowding of badminton courts and lay grounds for future growth...
    Anxiously waiting for the opening day..
