    Hi guys,

    I read some news about the port closure in China affecting shipments and supply chains of other products, e.g. iPhones.

    This lead me to wonder if anyone has seen any shortage of shuttlecock as a result? Should we stock up or risk a badminton apocalypse? :eek:

    I don't know where Hubei province fits in the scheme of shuttlecock production as well, so any insights would be appreciated.

    Received my shuttles. The impact of the virus is on the local level. Facilities have seen fewer people last couple weeks already.

    I'm in USA and you appear to be in Australia, maybe depend on each county's customs.. My case came in 2 weeks exact, counting weekend days too.

    Now nobody is allowed to play the demand should be pretty close to zero!
