    wow, that's really absurd
    how could you play outdoor?

    how about wind? and now tournament will only be in summer for 4 seasons country?

    I can't believe how stupid bwf could be
    even in summer some countries such as UK would be very windy, good luck playing All England based on luck!

    wow, unanimous decision? because PM playing outdoor?

    oh yeah, good job to make it "hottest"
    what's next? men should play with trunk and women with bikini?

    lol.. that is because it is in papua! they got no indoor court
    they are KIDS don't messing up between KIDS and us ADULTS who wants to play SERIOUS badminton
    not a frickin badminton on sunny day with wind
    may wind fairy and luck be ever in your favor

    this is the funniest thing I've ever heard in a while
    "correlation between sun and smile"
    maybe yes in europe
    but yeah, said that to people in arab country, or africa
    good luck with your smile and sun BS
    I will never gonna go to a badminton tournament with sun
    I HATE sun (yes I'm from Indonesia and I had too much sun!)


    in 2017, let's say I will not gonna watch any badminton match, ever

    edit: hmm.. I wonder if I'm being trolled by BWF..
    april 1st anyone?

    Appereantly it's an april fools joke, because all the names of the officials are made up.Good job BWF that you have nothing better to do than useless stuff like that. Why not give us some interviews or facts from professional player like Taufik or Peter?

    What BWF meant was throwing badminton out the door...absurd. I could see that Cameron guy did not even have the right grip and his footwork was totally off. I rather we split badminton into two sports, one called badmintoni and the other badmintono. Badmintoni is for the indoor and badmintono for the outdoor.

    Growing up as a kid I always played outdoor and I hated it! not to mention sometimes the shuttlecocks got stuck on the trees and I had to risk my life by climbing 15 feet high to retrieve it. BWF will be held liable if after 2017 we hear kids fall from the trees as they try to retrieve shuttlecocks.

    Hi BWF, it does not matter if the players like it; what matters is whether our friend Birdie likes it outdoor or not!! Get real my friend!

    Guys, lighten up it was a joke that lightened up my day, and I am surprised at how many didn't get it:p

    The subtle hints if you hadn't already got them were the use of "Sunrise" Mr "Sun" and "Ms April Fuchs"

    How people didn't get the joke is beyond me...

    Does the name Ray Sun (sun ray, a link to outside where there are a lot of sun rays? as well as the already pointed out link of Sunrise) not give you any clues at to this slightly early April fool's joke! :p

    However BWF are a day early... So no April fools, just a prank on passionate badminton enthusiasts which makes good use of the Cameron badminton publicity.

    Also, Summer Fairweather... LOL!:p

    Definitely April fools joke but Jan Lin is real. Maybe BWF wants to make the story appears in newspaper on 1st April.

    I like it! Changes to the rules to deal with shuttle being blown by winds, sun in the eyes, etc. It will be like tennis and maybe they will change the shuttle to something heavier and bouncier :D :D :D :D

    Ms April Fuchs is getting a lot of enquiries from outdoor stadiums on what they will need to do to be in line with the new changes so that they can be candidates to hosts the tournaments :D :D :D :D

    We should all send an e-mail to the one provided and pretend that we all believe in this article and see their response.
