2009 Australian Open Grand Prix
Badminton Australia has secured significant sponsorship support and has received the approval of the BWF to conduct a Grand Prix Event offering US$ 50,000 in prize money as follows:
- Venue: Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre
- Dates: 22-26 July 2009
I hope this attracts player from Indonesia (Djarum especially) and Malaysia..

2009 Australian Open Grand Prix at MSAC: 22-26 July 2009
This is highest prize money offered in a Badminton tournament held in Australia.
Let's hope it would attract more international players to participate.

If PB Djarum and Pelatnas are to send their teams to the Australian and New Zealand GP, what abt the Laos International Challenge 2009?

'Those who can win a GP' should go to Australia Open GP and NZ Open GP:
Andre Kurniawan Tedjono
Wifqi-Alfiat (in the borderline)
These players have won [at worst... one] BWF level 4 tournaments in the past, so it is time they win many BWF level 3 tournaments...
'Those who should win an International Challenge first' should go to Laos International Challenge and Indonesia International Challenge :
Nugroho Andi Saputro
Well, this is my logic...

Would it be a good idea to get together Melbourne-based BCers to go watch the event together? Suppose it'd be easier to convince people once the draw is out.

hi george, nice to see you here. actually, it's more like the other way round... using badminton to get used to melbourne
let me know if you have any info of entries to this tournament. my guess is that there shall be some KLRC players coming over.

entries close tomorrow for the Aus Open Grand Prix, so you won't be seeing the draw for a while yet. i hear that the organisers are expecting a decent amount of good (well, better than the usual bunch we see in international tournaments here) players considering that this is the first time a Grand-Prix-level event has been held in Australia. Yonex has been confirmed as the official sponsor of the $US50,000 event, you can read more about it here at the Badminton Australia website: www.badminton.org.au

It is confirmed that INA will send these players:
Andre Kurniawan Tedjono
