    Default BC Thomas/Uber Team Tournament (Kwun-Drifit Cup)

    Having been eliminated in the Thomas/Uber 2010 campaign, Malaysia's last chance for glory hinges on wresting the BadmintonCentral Kwun-Drifit Cup (in honour of the tournament's major sponsors). This event pits the (supposedly) best Malaysian BC members againt the well-travelled but heat-challenged BC World Team in a winner take all satay sticks, best of 9 doubles format.

    The venue will be at the National Reflexworld Arena, somewhere deep in the industrial heart of Puchong Town where people can get lost.

    Some of the BC World Team's top exponents have been undergoing "de-centralized training" in and around the Malaysian Peninsula. This include island hopping to Redang Island, testing for compatibility with spicy local mamak food in Penang, physical workout at the National Reflexworld Arena and last but not least, purchase of battlegear (racquets, shoes, shirts).

    Already, the psychological warfare has started ...... But Malaysia has been given a blow at the last minute when their top star, george@chongwei had to withdraw due to nasal injury that required surgery.

    More news and pics of the tournament progress will follow.

    Please keep us posted.

    The Malaysian team may have homeground advantage (and home stomach advantage), but their famous hospitality may make it impossible to beat up the visitors too badly (too polite to smite).

    Go easy on madbad.... he's only Canadian and thereby much handicapped.

    U will miss all the action. Even Malaysia can't be a champion in Badminton at the moment.. But I'm very sure we are a Champion on being a great host. Heheh what a consolation.

    The tournament referee is clad in his red "uniform", sponsored by Djarum.

    A few players have arrived, we have 15 minutes more before "disqualification".

    The facilities at the National Reflexworld Arena pretty much shades other more illustrious stadiums. We even have our own "court mopper".

    Players are starting to do stretches and warmup.

    Hardly any drift in this stadium, players are expected to run out of breath after this warmup period.

    Sam has brought in the winners' trophies. Loh and Kong-19 had a peek to motivate themselves and do "the unthinkable upset".

    Hauge brought in some shirts as souvenirs, Ants is planning a lucky draw later.

    The Ants and terry combination could prove to be the World Team's trumpcard.
