No one has yet replied how to become a line judge and the level of experience required for it yet... Any ideas?

For line judging, you will have needed to attend a line judge training session and attend two tournament practice sessions. The training and practice sessions were held late last year. There is another practice session scheduled in February for those who are missing out on the second practice session. These practice sessions are held during tournaments attended by qualified umpires who will ensure that line judges are calling and indicating correctly.
You could try contacting Anna Lao of ABA http://www.aba08.com.au/institution.asp?flag=para12 but if you haven't already done the training, it might be a bit late now.

Sydney would be bidding for a Super Series tournament soon
From a reliable source (don't ask me from where ), I have been told why our 2012 Australian Open GP Gold will be held in Sydney (not Melbourne). It is because there is more government and corporate sponsorship support in Sydney than in Melbourne.
I have been told that Sydney would be bidding to replace our GP Gold tournament with a Super Series tournament (perhaps in 2 years' time).
Let's hope it would come true... It would make Badminton more popular in Australia.
BCers get to hear about this news first at BadmintonCentral.
BTW, it is heard that Russia is also interested in holding a SS tournament too. BWF will need to put on their thinking caps.

ya man. Darling reminds if of Yumcha. Am a regular there during uni days.
I bet my wgong mates will drive up.
Wonder when NSW BA will grow up. I also had a bad experience with them on player preference. I protested and they just ignore the rules for allowing a 'famous' late player to join in after 2 freakin hours. How unprofessional it is.
Air Asia X is flying to Sydney. Anyone got free tickets mate? lol.
Mayflower or EastOcean for YumCha?

NSW Badminton is calling for volunteers to help out at the Australian Badminton Open - you will get the same benefits as line judges except of course you don't do line judging. You get access to the events by being a volunteer. See this link for more information - http://www.ultimatebadminton.com/ABO12/
Basically, you need to be over 16 years of age, be available on 31 March to pick up your Yonex uniform and do the paperwork, familiarise yourself with the site - 2 hrs of your time and you get to watch the events (when you are not on shift) - and get fed during your shift - what more can you want?
Hope to see you these!

Just a repost, anyone know when and how will we be informed of whether we are selected to be volunteers?

How major or minor is the Aust Open in the scheme of things for one season? The player list that they published on the website suggests that almost all of the top players are coming! Is that likely?
Really interested in taking time off work to watch my first badminton tourney if it's gonna be a field of classy players!

Also at this stage there is no sign of CHN big names such as LD CL or CJ or CY/FHF participating on the event.
