    Default New Gymn in Milpitas, South Bay Area

    I just heard about this today. This place has something like 35,000 sq. miles.
    Has anyone here visited there? Anyone has its address?

    35,000 sq. miles??? That's like an area of 100 miles x 350 miles which means that in order for me to go from one end to another, it will take me approx. 90 minutes by car on the short side (65 miles/hr) and approx. 5 plus hours on the long side!

    I am assuming that you meant 35,000 square feet which is a pretty big place and you probably can put in around 24 badminton courts.

    Well, 35,000 sq miles would be KICK@$$ but I was referring to the 35,000 sq feet mentioned by WWC

    Oops... After a few long days of overtime, plus it was very late when I submitted
    my last post, I guess my mind was just not there anymore. But it seems you
    guys are all too sharp and fast to recognize the mistake and offer the proper
    correction...

    Hmm... Kwun, I really wish I know. I heard this from someone who in turn
    heard this from "John" (who plays at Shoreline and at Sunnyvale). I hope
    he's not reading this forum. He's rather uptight with people mentioning his name
    in the Internet....

    But seriously, I don't think my source know. But try to ask the owner of Shoreline
    gymn. He may know. I heard he canceled his plan to open one in Milpitas (and
    is looking for another place).

    Sorry to be off topic, but very well understand ur feeling...

    Well, I have to order racket online (since there's no local store within driving distance", and my closest club is 35 miles away from home, the farthest is 65 miles. So, 70-130 miles of driving + badminton, heheheheheh....

    well, there is a rumor that the ASBY people is working on one. maybe that's what John was refering to.

    and it looks like BANC isn't working on it anymore for now. they seems to be happy with the SJSU gym.

    even with the rent in the bay area going down, the monthly rent for the large gyms we are talking about is huge. imagine if it is $1/sq.ft, we are still talking about US$35k/month. the risk for taking up such a lease is big and the people involved will be in big debt if they were to fail to recover the cost. that is just an unfortunately side of the economics.

    The City Beach website says they have 16 professional courts in their gym. Is that a good place to play?

    do you expect a gym to open and offers court space for free?

    as i said, if this place rumored do open up, the rent will be astronomical (US$20,000+ per month), if they offer the gym time for free, how are they going to make up the cost?
