New Delhi (PTI): The national camp for the preparation of the Thomas and Uber Cup tournaments scheduled in Goa from Thursday has been called off due to unavailability of shuttlecocks.

Badminton Association of India blamed the Sports Authority of India and the Ministry, saying the association has been trying for the last five months to get the shuttlecocks in time but SAI has failed to provide them.

The top shuttlers who had reached the venue were asked to pack off and head home.

BAI President V K Verma said this was the first time that a national camp had to be called off due to the lackadaisical approach of DGSAI and Sports Ministry.

"It is unprecedented and upsetting for our players. This has happened due to the complete apathy on the part of DGSAI and the Sports secretary. I have met them so many times and informed them about the shortage. We have been managing somehow by begging and borrowing shuttlecocks," he said.
