    I think that the homepage and covering of HK open is a joke, never has the updating of results been so slow and I thought that a place like Hong Kong whould have these things under control, bur I thought wrong.

    Nothing less of a dissaster.......totally hopeless:mad:

    Fyi, Hong Kong Badminton Association by itself is a joke. They organized events so badly and always imposed unnecessary restrictions (e.g. cannot take photos inside the stadium even w/o flash).

    Actually that is also the case at the All England.

    More Evidence of their mis-management would be in the cancellation of the event in some years with very little notice.

    Hahah thats a good one! :). I had a bad feeling about this HK open even before they have the event. Everything seems to be last minute.

    results sheets are very messy. one has to look at all places on the board to
    find the top & bottom half for the same event. Quite disappointed to be here.
