    Hope that many BC players could attend the 2009 Sydney World Masters Games.
    You don't have to be a professional Badminton player to participate in it.
    But you have to be old enough to fit into the Age Categories. :):):)

    chris@ccc won't be participating in the 2009 Sydney World Masters Games

    .
    ctjcad ... Because of my coaching and CCC activities/commitments in Melbourne, there is little chance for me to participate in the 2009 Sydney World Masters Games. :eek::eek::eek:

    Even for the 2002 World Masters Games held in Melbourne, I couldn't make it.

    Serving Badminton players in Melbourne is my priority. Therefore, I don't think that I would be participating in the 2009 Sydney World Masters Games.

    Anyway, if you can make it, let me know. I might be able to link you up with some Australian players participating there.

    Cheers... chris-ccc

    Based on BWF calendar, as usual all five GP Gold tourneys will be concentrated in Asian region with PHI Open still needs further confirmation whether it will be cancelled or not. June, September to November are busy months, hectic schedule. Overall, there's no major differences with this year calendar except BWF events of course.
