  • National back-up shuttlers in danger of being booted out (pic)

    KUALA LUMPUR: Some of the back-up shuttlers are in danger of being booted out of the national badminton team.
     
    The Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) will be conducting an open selection trials at the Juara Stadium in Bukit Kiara from Jan 20-24 and all the states have been asked to send their best players to challenge the back-up shuttlers.
     
    Talent search programme chief David Wee said the trials would be closely monitored by the national coaches.
     
    “We are trying out this open selection trials for the first time. It is a transparent way of selecting the players for the national team and we hope that the best will get in. If a state player can beat the national back-up player, he or she will be invited to join the national team and the back-up player will be dropped,” said David.
