Potential Professional Badminton League in Malaysia
Should Malaysia start a professional badminton league? China and Indonesia are active in this area and even attracting players from Malaysia!!

Its a good idea when the pool of players are there

The pool in Malaysia is very big and not short of sponsors. Only needs organization.

Malaysia may have a big pool to us
but can't compare to China or Indonesia,
that's why it has not started yet.
Just look at the new intake every year in BJSS,
about 6 players for boys and 6 for girls
and don't forget to minus the kick outs
Our pool is about one tenth that of China
if i am not wrong

It need not be like China's pro league. I have shared my views on a few aspiring privateers the idea on private league supported by BAM & state BAs (including Sabah, Sarawak, Brunei & Singapore). Obviously the latter is to attract sponsors to fuel this effort. My inclination is skewed towards grass roots simply because of the neglect in the foundation of our badminton. I can share more but only on request since I have been accused to be too ahead of my time.

You nailed it right on. Grass root league is potentially very rewarding for the searching and subsequently the development of new talents. The approach must be right in organizing it.

"Just" need good coaching education . Football, handball and gymnastics are more popular there even/more members ... ~ 350,000 for football. Not even 10,000 for table tennis and they had some world class players recently ...

producing world class player with a relatively small population
but that's Denmark
To add, here if China is at par with Denmark,
there should be a dozen Lin Dan
There were some proposals on such league tournament among the states here
but i seriously doubt they will ever kick off.
