    China's economy is good so most of the parents urge the kids to study business or work, eventhough the parents encourage the kids playing sport, they will choose tennis, Golf, Basketball, etc and badminton could be the last choice...
    So China Badminton wanted to show that they can earn good money by playing badminton.

    Also that official said that it is irony since Badminton and table Tennis is under one administration that Table tennis players earn about 6 to 10 times than badminton players.
    he told me that there was an inside joke..if badminton player looks for a house..table Tennis players will look for what kind of cars they will get...

    Also at the same time...China has so many badminton players and they do not want them to go to overseas and also a chance for other players to play top players at the same time...thats some of the reasons I was given..
    rudy, the cba official is a good spokeman or spokewomen

    promoting baddy through clubs have been centuries old idea,

    for baddy not many countries can do it, maybe china and indonesia only.

    i believe some countries are not happy with bwf for promotion of baddy.

    promote baddy for entertainment and for development for more players

    are two different things we can look at.

    take the case of nigeria, i think they would be more happy if bwf continue to promote more from the bottom, simply there is nobody in the top.lol

    for china or ina its just the opposite!

    here, what can bwf do when the pool of players are getting bigger and bigger

    everytime there is only one champion per category,

    imagine the money spent and the number of players qualified for each tournament,

    something must be done otherwise there will be a deadlock.lol

    Question Is CBL killing off SS?

    .
    IMHO, the question asked is not a fair one.

    Let us talk about this;

    * We cannot say that Football leagues held in different countries are killing off international FIFA matches.

    * Similarly, we cannot say that Basketball leagues held in different countries are killing off international FIBA matches.

    I would say that if more Badminton leagues can be organised by more countries, Badminton will gain better popularity, not less.

    Therefore, I would say that BWF shouldn't feel that national leagues are killing off their sanctioned tournaments.

    I think that direct comparisons between the way various sports are run internationally is not the right way to go. Each sport has its own inherent, unique issues and considerations, depending on demographics, geography, the specific nuances of the sport itself etc etc. It may be good practise to borrow ideas and pointers and best practises, but anything more may just cause more confusion than good.

    Thumbs down Money involved in match-fixing by gamblers

    .
    From what I have read from other threads, invited players are to entertain the general Badminton spectators at the league, which is a good thing.

    Whether GZ Badminton Club will do well, I am not quite sure; because there could be money involved in match-fixing by gamblers (so I have heard).
