    Grassroots badminton gets a LeapStart boost


    http://www.sportskeeda.com/2013/07/3...apstart-boost/

    EXCERPTS:




    LeapStart, Indiaís Premier Physical Education and Sports Program are hosting their inaugural National Badminton Championships in Bangalore.


    This is the only private National Badminton championships, giving kids across the country a platform to compete nationally, against talent from other regions.


    The U-16 age category tournament travelled across nine cities of Bangalore, Chennai, Mumbai, Delhi, Trichy, Kochi, Hyderabad, Pune and Rajpura (Punjab) through the months of June and July and saw over 200 schools and over 1500 kids participate, highlighting the reach of the LeapStart program across India. LeapStart is now delivering a world class PE curriculum across 40 cities, including a number of Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities.


    The top four finishers (girls and boys) from each city have been invited to Bangalore for the National Finals which is held on the 1st and 2nd of August 2013. The event saw some of the top players in each region come out and put their skills on display.


    This might be LeapStartís first National Badminton event in particular as LeapStart has already hosted annual national tournaments in cricket and football since 2011, which received overwhelming responses as well.


    The growing appreciation for the sport of badminton amongst youngsters, and the sheer number of children now pursuing it at a competitive level, made LeapStart feel that there was a need to create an opportunity to let these kids pit their skills against the best in the country. LeapStart are also soon introducing a badminton curriculum as part of their PE program offering.

    I'm not sure if this has already been posted here, but here it is. A short video report on a recent initiative by the Prakash Padukone Academy in Bangalore.

    Had a look at the Japan open draw. I can count 6 men's singles entries for the main draw. That's an impressive statistic. If two players can break into the top 8, they would only be China in front.

    they are saying that India is one of a kind, although not on the level of China, Indonesia, Denmark and Korea, and also doesn't belong to 2nd tier Thailand, Japan and England.. it has produced 4 dark horses within a short span of 30 yrs and PV Sindhu is the latest dark horse to be produced fro India

    Hm imop Thailand and Japan are both stronger than India. Their singles squads are strong in numbers, but they have no serious doubles players and the MS players don't really have Top5 potential.
    Thailand has a really good WS squad now and are improving steadily, while Japan is -in my opinion- the strongest squad of the three, having very strong doubles players and not-too-shabby singles squads as well, being a bit ahead of India in the MS while not being as strong as either India or Thailand in WS.

    Disappointing results from the Japan Open with none of the men getting to the semifinals. Seems to be a barrier for them to get to semifinals consistently.

    If strictly speaking, all the MS players from india were underdogs when all the top seeds were participating. They did justice to their ranks and gone far to reach last 16. Two of them are qualifiers.

    Ajay jayaram lost to Tin Minh Nyugen
    H.S.Prannoy lost to Gao Huan (beating Wong Wing ki, Jan O jorgensen in first 2 rounds)
    K.Srikanth lost Kenichi Tago (beating Sho sasaki , Kazuteru kozai who has beaten world No.2 ChenLong in the first 2 rounds).

    These youngsters are doing a good progress. Both Prannoy and srikanth are just 20. They can do well in the coming tournaments.

    With all due respect, when you look at the individual threads for these players, one can see "huge potential", "promising", "up and coming". I guess my expectations have been raised too high too fast with those descriptions.

    There are other players from other countries who have done even better recently - even Thailand and Japan.

    Atleast the threads did not mention something like "The Next Super King" or any other very very attractive captions like many player have got for them. "Up and coming" and "Huge Potential" and "Promising" are quite understandable than "The Next Super King" or something like that. These players are showing quiet improvement in their play than those more attractive captions !!!

    Yep. I accept it. He has great potential. But i wanna remember you that the thread was opened in 2010. Now september 2013.
    Having such talents and training methods in china, i think his Superseries title is very late. And the caption "The Next Super King" is too much to handle. He exited in the first round itself in Japan Open 2013. "Super King" can be given to LinDan or LCW but not to others, according to my opinion. But i am not gonna blame them for saying so. They have rights to praise their country players.

    He was world junior champion but I agree, the proclamation is over enthusiastic. But does that justify the proclamations for the threads for the Indian players?

    In terms of numbers, they have been doing really well - just can't get that breakthrough.

    So we agree that they are over presumptive at present.
