Veterans badminton gets timely lift

PARTICIPATION of veteran shuttlers in international tournaments will be regulated more closely with the formation of the Malaysia Masters Badminton Association (MMBA).

Launched on Oct 21, the association will choose qualified shuttlers through a selection process to represent the country in respective categories of international masters tournaments.

MMBA president Datuk Irwan Shah Abdullah, fondly known as Datuk DJ Dave, said the association and Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) would start formalising the selection process which is expected to start next year.
