    Its very rare to find professional badminton players in Reebok attire, unlike the tennis pros. Just wondering is this a one-off sponsorship by Reebok just for the Commonwealth Games?

    coming to a court near you...
    I noticed that too. Either it's a one off or Reebok are planning a massive invasion into the badminton scene. I pray it's the latter

    In Commonwealth Games & Olympics it is quite common for teams to be using a kit sponsored by the overall team sponsor, not the individual association's sponsor. Eg. Indian Commonwealth Team not the Indian badminton association. So I assume the main team is supplied by Reebok & the yonex kit has to be not used in the tournament.

    No advertising on shirt in these type of events. Another example: no YY logo on the sleeve and back during Olympics.

    Yonex shuttles and there is also a Yonex Stringing Team here. We are limited to one logo per item, so only the logo at the front of the shirt, because the back logo is too big. It's not as strict with warm up and training though, where it doesn't really matter what you wear there.

    What about the YY logo on their rackets? Those are pretty big and the organisers allow that?

    They were debating about the bag logos and racquet stencil logos, but in the end it's okay. Not quite as strict as Olympics.

    Talking about logos, I saw Xing Aiying playing with Yonex logo on her racquet. But she wears a Li Ning shirt.

    That's cause the Singapore National Team is sponsored by Li Ning whereas her individual sponsor is Yonex.
