    Yes, it seems they secured Yonex as title sponsor

    Yonex shuttlecocks are provided in limited basis:
    - B/C/D/E/Junior(U13/U11) Singles events : 2 for main & 1 for consolation
    - A/B/C/D Doubles events : 3 for main & 2 for consolation
    - Yonex shuttlecocks are available purchase during the tournament

    FYI for the bc'ers who are playing and dont use yonex shuttles regularly, they fly a little on the fast side compared to most other shuttles out there. Keep an eye out for this and use it to your advantage if your opponent doesnt check/adjust the shuttle speed before using them. ;) You have been warned/informed!
