    PETALING JAYA: The new scoring format for badminton will not be used for the Korean Open tournament, International Badminton Federation (IBF) vice president Datuk Punch Gunalan said yesterday.

    Instead, the IBF may try some experiments at the Open.

    The new format, which uses volleyball's scoring format of 21 points, is likely to be tried out with the help of participating players.

    The IBF are planning to run a string of experimentations in the first six months of this year.

    “The Korean Open proper will not be affected by the experiments. But we are planning to try out a new scoring system and some other changes, maybe before or after the matches at the Korean Open,†said Gunalan.

    A decision on whether the IBF will implement the changes will have to be finalised by this year.

    It will give players and coaches a chance to experiment with the system for a year from May 2006 to May 2007.

    If it is acceptable, then the new changes can be implemented during the one-year Olympic qualifying season from May 2007 to May 2008 for the Beijing Olympics.

    Besides the scoring format, the IBF are also looking at using a synthetic shuttle, shortening the duration of the match and tournament, adjusting the size of the court, and introducing eye-catching attire.

    I think the score-system of to day is the best one.
    A new score-system is not necessary.
    The bad experience and the fail of 5 x 7 score-system is a good example.

    I wonder why the score-system must be changed ?
