    BWF: Premier Super Series mandatory for top shuttlers
    PETALING JAYA: It is often the organisers and sponsors who are at the losing end when the stars do not turn up.
    But this will not be the case when the Premier Super Series, billed as the ‘Grand Slam’ of badminton, takes flight next year.


    The Badminton World Federation (BWF) will make it mandatory for all the top 10 singles players and doubles pairs under the world rankings to play in all five Premier Super Series and a minimum of four Super Series tournaments from next year.


    The BWF, during their council meeting in May, announced that five countries – South Korea, England, Indonesia, Denmark and China – will host the Premier Super Series for three years from 2011 to 2013.


    The Korea Open, which will be held after the season-opening Malaysia Open in January next year, will offer a handsome US$1.2mil in prize money.
    It will make it the richest-ever badminton tournament in history.


    Indonesia will offer the second highest prize money of US$600,000, followed by the All-England, Denmark and China Opens at a minimum of US$350,000.
    Also making its debut in the Super Series is the India Open in April.


    The India Open replaces the Swiss Open, which has dropped to a Grand Prix Gold status tournament.
    BWF events director Darren Parks, in response to an e-mail query, said the top 10 players in the world rankings on a given date by November this year would come under this ruling.


    “This is to ensure that these events have the greatest possible quality and consistency to benefit spectators in the arena and television viewers alike.


    “The November date is chosen so that they have plenty of time to put in their entry for the first Super Series of the year in Malaysia and the first Premier Super Series in South Korea.


    “Additional players who come into the top 10 in the world rankings at a given date later in the year, approximately at the half-way point in the year, will also be obliged to play in the remaining Premier Super Series and minimum of three Super Series,” he said.


    And BWF are drawing up a more stringent penalty for any world top 10 player who fails to turn up without a valid reason.
    “There is a US$5,000 withdrawal penalty, which the disciplinary committee who review the case may wish to add to.
    “The player may avoid paying this fee by travelling to the tournament concerned to take part in media functions, similar to the ATP Tour for tennis.

    “But the disciplinary committee may also choose to waive the fee if strong evidence is presented that the player is unfit to travel.
    “BWF will not put the players’ health at risk in any circumstances.”

    Default Requirements and penalty on missing PSS w/out a valid reason announced..

    ..so, we finally have a penalty announced by BWF for a player missing out on a PSS tourney without a valid reason (most likely injury): a $5000 in fine. But no mention of WR or SS points reduction.
    But they could still avoid the fine as long as they come to the PSS tourneys and simply take part in media functions..
    Also, additional player who come into top 10 players at a given date later in the yr are required to attend the remaining PSS and at least 3 more SS..or else..
    *thanks, eaglehelang for the news/article clip..

    It means all top 10 players/pairs must participate nine tourneys in SS circuit (5 Premiere SS + 4 SS) per year started 2011.

    It's about time that top players are warned to not disappoint organisers and fans like in the past; failing to turn up without a valid reason.

    but how to you enforce it? normally, the main reason for not going is not in form or got better things to do and the excuse will be injures. its not that difficult to get a doctor to certified as injured.
    one way to get all the top players interested is say to double the ranking points and price money. even that might not work, as CHN team clearly stated thet they will not look into the ranking prior to the 12 months before London 2012, thus all the trying out for the doubles pairings. and price money is really peanut for player like LD reported earning over 2mill USD a year.

    AlanY, After reading your post, I have to make some corrections to my my post.

    Most of our top Badminton players are not independent players. Usually their National Associations tell them what to do.

    Perhaps, IMHO, their National Associations are more to be blamed; not the players themselves.

    I think they should be OK, even including the CBL. It's only like 12 tournaments per year.

    As for the Chinese team and the CBSL schedule, yes, they are still planning to hold the CBSL next yr. If the CBSL schedule occurs like during this yr (from May/June til Aug.), then the only PSS and SS which will be affected during that time are the Indonesia Open PSS and the S'pore Open SS.
    I feel CHN will try to send some of their top players to those 2 SS and somehow work out its CBSL schedule.

    BWF has to do more things:

    aRanking points
    It is a joke,,..I have complained about it...current SS winer is 9200 points..for Premier is 9700 points..only 500 points more
    b. Injury/retire
    Current BWF's rule that you can retire in one mtach but you cna play next one..this does not make sense and loophole for foul play..
    For example during Macau Open:
    LHJ injured her back and decided to retire her XD match but she could play WD which she retired too.so we asked Referee and she said that the rules said that a player retires from one match and can play other disciplin..in tennis..if you retire in double..you can play single or vice versa.....

    I have asked Korean team why LHJ had to play WD as she retired from her XD? the answer was LHJ needs to be examined by doctor and the procedure is quite long so she decided to play one or two points and retired...and much easier....

    Perhaps, the Malaysia Open SS could be included as a Premier Super Series event after 2013.

    They should at least bring this issue up when the bidding for premier SS is on.
    Perhaps BWF would consider make it as a Premier SS Event.

    Looks like you have missed this article;

    ====== * ====== start parts of article ====== * ======

    Thursday, July 15th, 2010

    KUALA LUMPUR: The Badminton World Federation (BWF) have spoken, yet the BA of Malaysia (BAM) were adamant to unearth the "real" reason why they were denied the hosting rights to the Premier Super Series from 2011-2013.

    It seems there are efforts to raise this matter during the Super Series host nations meeting which may be during the World Championships in Paris next month.

    BWF announced two months ago that Malaysia will not host the prestigious event. It was earlier learnt that BAM failed to submit a proper proposal to the world body.
