Golden Gate Badminton Club (www.ggbadminton.com) will be openning its facility to the public in the very near future (latest word is mid-April 2005). It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to test out the facility prior to it being open to the public. I would categorize it as the best playing experience I have had, surpassing my experiences at other Bay Area facilities. In summary, the gym boasts of: Â§ 8 badminton courts with 35 ft high ceiling, probably the highest ceiling for a badminton club in US, and maybe the world Â§ Use of the Robbins Flooring System (www.robbinsfloor.com) that is employed in the Olympic training center in Colorado, and installed by the best installer from Europe Â§ An 11mm padding with High-tec polymer coating for maximum sports performance during training and competitions providing the maximum protection, shock absorption and traction available Information on other amenities can be found in the above website. GGBC anticipates openning in the next few weeks. More information will be provided on the website as the date of the openning gets closer. GGBC is founded and operated by Mike Yang(cuurently rank 2nd in Men's Singles in US) and 1992 US Badminton Olympian Ben Lee.
