I agree with you about the stringing. I believe Badminton England and sponsors have a duty to all players to make their participation as fair as possible. This should include preparation of rackets in my opinion, even if other stringers were provided an area that is not in public view. That said, we had so much fun in our apartment (i'll write on my blog about the week) and I would not like the distration of stopping every few minutes to answer passer-by questions.

 

For me it was great that the Korean players walked into out apartment filled out the slips and attached to the racket and then left them with us. They were so friendly and it was a great experience. We didn't meet the Indonesian players although a few Chinese Taipei girls visited us to use the washing machine! That was fun!

 

For me there is no heart and excitement on the concourse now. It used to be a thrill to walk around and see all the other brands showing their rackets and goods. Nowadays the place is empty and Yonex has caused this.

All Englands seemed to be a great tournament albeit was gutted when BWF decided not to allow access to its uploads online. Im assuming as thats because sky tv were showing it….not so good for those of us that dont have sky….mens singles final sounded great too…

I managed to catch the final on a live link which was great to watch.

 

We don't have Sky TV so it really is a pest when live badminton is on and we can't watch it.

BWF didn't broadcast in the UK…however, if you used an anonymous proxy server (search Google) you can convince the BWF server you are not in the UK; worked for me Wink
