Grand Prix Badminton Tournament in April 2008
New Delhi (PTI): India's first Grand Prix badminton event, carrying qualification points for Beijing Olympics, will take place from April 1-6 in Hyderabad.
The tournament, which was scheduled for last September but postponed after the bomb blasts in Hyderabad, will have $130,000 as prize money and will feature some of the top players in the world.
"This will be the last qualification tournament for the Beijing Olympics. There are already 10 Grand Prix tournaments carrying Olympic qualification points but BWF has added this tournament to the list and we are thankful for this," Badminton Association of India President V K Verma said.

India GP 2008: Is it to be held 1-6, in April or July?
Yes, I bet many players will play... It's their last chance to get qualifying points.
BTW, I have just checked our own BC 2008 Tournaments Schedule... and I found that the India GP Gold is to be held in July, 1-6.
Could it be a misprint somewhere, either @BC or @The Hindu Online?
