A new badminton club has opened in Kuala Lumpur's iconic Twin Towers, but the venue is unlike any typical court.
Shuttle in the Dark is a glow-in-the-dark badminton court, resembling a set from sci-fi action film Tron: Legacy.
At this futuristic-looking venue, players enjoy a game of badminton
with neon-accented equipment (think luminous rackets and shuttlecocks)
while accompanied by ultraviolet light lamps and upbeat music.
The court is also equipped with BWF International tournament grade
badminton court mats and nets, with walls and track lines painted in
fluorescent colours to guide players in the dark.
Players are recommended to wear white or fluorescent clothes, or they can also rent reflective jerseys.
Open to players of all levels, fees at Shuttle in the Dark start at RM180 (US$42) per hour with a maximum of eight players.
There are plans to bring the concept to nearby countries of
Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia, according to Shuttle in the Dark's
founder Irina Inozemtseva, who was a former professional player.
