At UBC Thunderbird Arena, I heard!
Shoot. I was hoping somewhere closer to me, I volunteered last year since I was visiting for 2 months, but now I can't see the tourney
It has been confirmed.
Looks like I will be attending this year. The arena looks very nice and I'm very excited!
Should be better lighting, I hope!
Should be nice. And lighting can be adjusted properly.
^^ If only they set up finals to be like that, but I'm not sure they will spend the time to rearrange the courts. They can, but will they put in extra work to do it? haha
They should include a boxing ring in case the Thai players come back this year if they are over the ban... lol.
They'll probably arrange it 3 courts across like they always do, then remove the 2 side courts, leaving the centre court for finals day and some room on the side for prize presentation and post game interview. This way they can keep the same lighting.
thinking about playing in the qualifiers if anyone is interested in some doubles

WD - Huang Yaqiong/Yu Xiaohan (CHN)
XD - Lee Chun Hei/Chau Hoi Wah (HKG)
Last year, this GP made headline suddenly, MD final brawl of two THA pairs...
I heard a lot about the MD final of last year but still I don't have a clear picture of what happened can anybody elaborate..
Jongjit and his ex-partner Bodin got into a fight while switching sides after their first set. Bodin was the aggressor, Jongjit tried to avoid it. Issues why this happened is uncertain, but that basically sums it up.
You can say Bodin was the physical aggressor, but Jongjit was the initial aggressor with his verbal taunts during the game. Granted Bodin should have controlled himself better and not react the way he did, but add a bit of bad history between them, and that was what happened.
Oh, I didn't see much of the game. They put me on 'patrol' out of the arena, so I only got to sneak in a few rallies here and there. Was right on time for the first punch though
Anyways, I hear Lee Hyun Il is at the CO this year! That must be pretty exciting, it's a shame I'm not there.
First round upset, 5th seed TPE Wang Tzu Wei lost to local MS Martin Guiffre, 15-21 / 17-21. Wang TW, promising young talent who won silver medal at 2013 WJC and winner of New Zealand Open GP last April.
