    Default Bonus for Superseries Top 10 and Protected Ranking

    Greatest news from BWF in a long while, if not ever:
    http://www.bwfbadminton.org/news_item.aspx?id=84522

    Top-ranked players are set to share an annual US$400,000 bonus once they fulfil various media and sponsorship commitments for the MetLife BWF World Superseries.
    At its meeting in New Delhi last week, the BWF Council unanimously approved this season-ending jackpot as part of a Player Incentive Scheme for athletes in the Top 10 of the BWF Destination Dubai Rankings. It also includes medical exemptions and protected rankings for these elite competitors in each discipline.

    this is a very significant change.

    i like the education activities idea. I hope BWF is thinking about getting LD or LCW to help, coach or mentor young players. If not, BWF can get LD or LCW to shoot some training videos.

    not sure about that reversion back to the old system of qualification for the TC / UC. I prefer the ranking system.

    Good move to introduce incentives for PR events. Will BWF give some training to players for these?

    They already conducted a training session during TC/UC. It was in a recent episode of Badminton Unlimited.

    The continental BAs have a point in giving more teams the opportunity to participate in a high profile team competition, although not at the final stage.

    For that to run smoothly, they should seriously consider cutting down other events such as by holding bi-annual WC and no BAC in Asian Games years.
