Sorrymate. Just now started to learn the big names involved in badminton. No idea who is Atik?
Thanks. He is still in India or back to Indonesia?
left 4-5 yrs ago
Unfortunate then. Definitely, this Sudhirman Cup is going to be a very tough one for India. I don't think , we will be able to come out to the next stage.
With LCW in their side, Malaysia is stronger than India . Except WS, we could not imagine any other victories.
Against Korea, no chance at all. So, i am already able to see the outcome with my eyes closed.
If Jwala plays out of her skin again, (the way she does during big majors); we might upset Malaysians. It will be left to KS vs LCW then.
BWF or BAC needs to learn from ITTF, first of all just look at its itTV live streaming...and no country restriction! And the current [individual] World Championships in Suzhou has participants from over 100 nations...something pretty hard to catch up from badminton. Also the TV coverage rights cover more continents and many more countries...something badminton can just dream of.
Bad year to start it as well given that many of the players got a lot of points without even playing a match. The JPN XD pair got through to the semi and 6420 points without even playing a match. Seems totally ridiculous this tournament being graded so high based on this year.
The BAC is a regional championship and covers many countries who have only amateur players, not only funding problems, unlike the Superseries. Yes, there's still a lot BAC can and must do to improve its status and image but I believe we will get there some day, sooner rather than later.
As Laozi said, the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step, and that first step has already been taken, such as raising the event to a superseries level by BWF and making it compulsory attendance for Asia's top players, most of whom are ranked among the world's best. Personally, I'm more concerned about what or how much more can be done for the badminton backward countries which are mainly also economically less- or under-developed.
Yes, kelana, learning from ITTF is a good idea.
I would love another International Challenge, GP, junior tournaments in Hong Kong.
HK players would love to see another tournament here that they can get a chance to aim for. There are many young players in the HK team and I guess other countries who train and train but don't get sent out to tournaments. That's quite demoralising. Yet if these players were given another venue to prove themselves, and succeed, they would at least get a chance. At the very least, they still get a barometer to gauge their progress.
The previous venue of the HK Open is a three court venue. There is the infrastructure available to go up to GP level (I think GPG requires 4 match courts). The expertise in HKBA is definitely available. But HKBA have to be keen (plus financially viable).
Is the above poster the answer?
Should change the system like WC probably.. It did not work out this year.. A lot things need to be improved... To ake it grande
Hkg can apply GPG, IC and junior tournaments but they dont want to... Getting pne IC and Junior will be good for HKG
In China, one problem for tournament organizer is that there are more players than fans. By that, I mean that many badminton enthusiasts are too busy playing their own tournaments to go to a stadium or even to watch on TV. To make badminton a big spectator sport, BWF and BAC should look into ways to hook these badminton enthusiasts in, along with their friends and families.
What about more ICs and IS in India?
ah hau, how about Guangzhou hosting a regular GPG event annually. is that possible?
That's not going to work. See my previous message.
You may have better luck with an IS or even FS to allow local top amateurs to test themselves.
It is up to CBA to choose the host.. GP, GPG level up are managed by BWF, not BAC
India can have one more IS or FS
How to get entries from 100 countries :
Each association shall be entitled to enter 3 men and 3 women players in each singles events, with one additional player ranked in the top 100 and one additional player ranked in the top 20 of the ITTF world ranking list issued in January of the year of the Championships to a maximum of 5 men and 5 women.
The maximum entry for each association is 2 men’s doubles, 2 women’s doubles and 2 mixed doubles; all players may be different.
The host Association may enter up to 6 men and 6 women in each singles event, 3 men’s doubles, 3 women’s doubles and 3 mixed doubles regardless of ranking.
TV coverage: sell to pan-european (eurosport free/paid viewing), pan-arabic (subscription network), pan-african (paid/subscription viewing), pan-caribbean networks for 90% of the countries covered . NOS Netherlands? At most only one of the final matches might be broadcasted and otherwise no more than a few minutes in the daily sports bulletin. Perhaps some streaming in dreadfull 360p quality on their website.
