ClearOne has recently opened the largest and most prestigious Badminton Centre in all of Florida if not the entire South-Eastern United States.  It offers 13 air-conditioned courts set in superb playing conditions with the same badminton mats the professional players use at the highest-level tournaments.

ClearOne is one of the pioneers in offering dedicated badminton facilities in North America.  Darryl Yung, a world-class coach and 1996 Olympic player, opened the first ClearOne facility in Richmond, a suburb of Vancouver, 10 years ago and now has three facilities in Canada, two in Richmond and one in Calgary.  ClearOne recently took aim at the US market and selected the city of Orlando for its first US Badminton Centre.

Orlando is one of the most sought-after locations for recreation and entertainment in the world.  It is one of the leading locations for conventions and has proven that it takes a leadership role in recreation and entertainment.

In today's market, change is a necessary function of society and the city of Orlando is a mecca for change and experiencing new activity.  ClearOne is following in the same direction.  It’s adapting to the demand for family recreation and entertainment.  It’s continuing on the path set out by Disney and others. Customers are craving for new outlets to exercise and stay fit, and at the same time remain in a comfortable social setting to enjoy some inexpensive nights of activity, health and wellness. 

The underlying value of fun is prevalent when all those that are currently playing badminton are asked about the ClearOne facility. The quality of the facility makes the playing easy and fun.  The 13 courts, green walls and comfortable viewing area and lounge makes playing and watching more enjoyable.  ClearOne also offers the best in badminton equipment with a well-stocked pro-shop featuring merchandise from both Yonex and Victor.

The Centre has already run four tournaments and played host to the best badminton players in Florida. It is now hosting 2013 USA Southern Regional from August 31st to September 1st which will attract the top players from 11 states.

In November it will host the 2013 Yonex USA International, which will have some of the best badminton players in the world.  It has already received confirmation that most of the reigning Pan American Champions will be coming. After only a year of operation, ClearOne Orlando is quickly becoming a focal point for badminton in Florida and the southern United States. 

ClearOne has also attracted interest from top international badminton coaches.  Hendry Winarto an Indonesian player who for the last 7 years has been playing and coaching in Spain has recently joined ClearOne in Orlando as its head professional.  Hendry brings a wealth of experience and will be coaching and training players at all levels.

The Centre has being pioneering the way to really show how much fun badminton is, and show the social aspect of the game where friends and families get together and enjoy an afternoon/evening of hitting the shuttlecock around the court.
