  • Time for a concerted effort in badminton (pic)

    TENGKU Tan Sri Mahaleel Tengku Ariff has been president of the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) for five months.

    So, how has he stacked up, so far?

    A bit of a hit-and-miss, actually.

    Changes have been made, no doubt about that.

    But the question that begs to be answered is were they done for the sake of changing and were they effective?

    Let’s look back.

    It took one month of groundwork before Tengku Mahaleel unveiled his grand scheme – a new structure, new key personnel and an ambitious five-year plan.

    It looked good on paper, I would say.
