The pre-Olympics fitness drive is on. A signpost here from Shanghai's new sports facility.
And there's so much fitness going on, its spilling out onto the pavements outside the complex. Below is a badminton game in progress.
It's common to see impromptu pavement badminton games but when its right outside a purpose built million dollar sports complex it does seem to suggest the facility is only one of many possible venues rather than the definitive. And a reminder that the purpose built isn't always the answer to everything, sometimes the relaxed, expedient or informal is just fine.
