    Kenny Goh gave 2 months notice, so of course he's still around. An academic college/uni offered him a much beter offer, it seems.

    i think Kenny is a good educator and i believe he is going to where he is more suited. hopefully the one taking over will be able to take BAM to greater heights.

    In such scary times where even good companies get badly shaken,it's gutsy of Kenny to leave a safe haven like BAM for a better offer in a college.Maybe Rao's friend needs a safer job and Rao learnt well from Punch and is doing to Kenny what Punch did to him.

    the national training center is located at the stadium juara.
    so dunno why suddenly the mas net ball team wants to train at the same venue.
    thats why mas badminton team training would be affected a bit.

    Badminton: Roland decides to call it quits
    By Ajitpal Singh

    2009/06/09

    DATUK Roland Wong, after almost three decades with the BA of Malaysia (BAM), will quit as deputy president of the national body at the end of this month. Roland will not be seeking re-election as president of the Negri Sembilan Badminton Association (NSBA), which means he will have to relinquish his post as BAM deputy president.

    Roland, who has been deputy president since 1993, said he had served for too long and it was time to give others the chance to lead.

    The 68-year-old is one of the longest serving deputy presidents of a national association in Malaysia and has served under two previous BAM presidents -- Tan Sri Elyas Omar and Datuk Dr Fadzil Che Wan -- and now under current supremo Datuk Nadzmi Salleh.

    "I was supposed to quit four years ago but was coaxed into staying. I have enjoyed every moment of my job but all good things have to end," said Roland yesterday.

    "I am happy with what I've achieved and contributed towards the sport.

    "Now it's time to serve the community. I will concentrate on handling a HIV Centre in Kuala Lumpur."

    Roland's greatest moment was when he was team manager of the 1996 Atlanta Olympics badminton squad.

    "I will always remember Atlanta as it was there that Malaysia won a silver medal for the first time through Cheah Soon Kit-Yap Kim Hock," he said.

    Meanwhile, the 100 PLUS National Junior Badminton Circuit Grand Finals starts in Seremban tomorrow.

    More than 250 players will be gunning for honours in the tournament which will be divided into four age groups - Under-12, Under-14, Under-16 and Under-18 -- singles and doubles.

    Roland said national youth tournaments play a crucial role in the development of the sport.

    "Many of our current national players were first spotted playing on the junior circuit. I hope to see some from here making the grade in the near future," he added.
