Badminton Academy Of Victoria Web Site Relaunch

Just moved, to the cloud.

I’ve just relaunched Badminton Academy of Victoria web site. v2.0 sports a new look and floats on Posterous platform.

The site previously used WordPress(.org) and was hosted at Go Daddy. I decided to migrate it to Posterous to allow the users to spend more time using the site, and less time maintaining the site software and infrastructure.

Just like everyone else, I initially considered, but Posterous has most if not all of the features needed for $0, this includes custom domain name, custom theme, FeedBurner integration, Twitter and Facebook integration, easy Google Maps embedding, easy image gallery, short URL, and post by email. Posterous wins, hands down.

And a bit of a plug for BAV:

Badminton Academy of Victoria is specialising in junior coaching. We have outstanding records in winning under 11, 13, 15, 17, and 19 junior tournaments in Victoria and Australia.

One of their coaches, Lenny Permana, is an old friend of mine from back in the university days. She was a former world number 11 female badminton player, and (so far) the only friend with a Wikipedia entry. BAV itself has produced several Olympic and Commonwealth Games athletes.

Trivia: Do you know that badminton is the fastest racket sport? The fastest smash was clocked at 332km/h. As a comparison, Andy Roddick’s world record serve was 249.4km/h.
