Badminton: Junior Inter State Championships Start On Thursday At Bukit Kiara

KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 3 (Bernama) -- The nation's top young shuttlers are set to impress national selectors at the four-day 100Plus National Junior Inter State Team Badminton Championships, beginning Thursday.

The event will be held at the Juara Stadium in Bukit Kiara.

Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) vice-president Datuk Mohamed Al-Amin Abdul Majid said the tournament would serve as an important training ground for the shuttlers to show their capability.

"This is the sixth edition of the tournament. In the last two editions, the level and quality of performance displayed by the young players have been very impressive.

"What is important here is that our young players have the opportunity and the ideal platform to compete against their peers," he told reporters here Tuesday.

He said the tournament also offered a pool of young shuttlers ready to be upgraded to the national back-up squad.

On this year's tournament, Mohamed Al-Amin said Kelantan and Perlis would not participate as their players were busy with preparations for their school examination.

Nevertheless, he said, there was a new entry from the Putrajaya Badminton Association.

On the championships, he said more than 200 shuttlers would battle for the total prize amounting to RM20,000.

Last year, the Selangor team retained their title for the second consecutive time (2008, 2009) in the Junior Inter State Team Badminton Championships after beating Penang 7-3 in the final round.
