A fun fact: Before it was renamed as Guillemard Village, it was the former Singapore Badminton Hall and was built specially to defend the Thomas Cup first won in 1949 by the Malayan team. Thereafter, it was leased to the Singapore Badminton Association for use as its headquarters since 1 February 1978 and managed by the Singapore Sports Council. On 1 September 1999, the National Heritage Board recognised the hall as a historical site. Some taxi “uncles” still refer to it as the Old Singapore Badminton Association Hall.
