63 Teams competing in 8 groups
A badminton enthusiast to Singapore might be surprised to see so many constituency teams participating in what is now known as The Community Games.
This year's badminton competition is held at the Tampines Sports Hall, which has the most number of public courts at 19.
The competition started yesterday for Round 1. In all, 63 teams will compete in 8 Groups:
Since each team is expected to field a mamimum of 8 players in 5 events:
(a) Active Ager/Veteran Men’s Doubles; (2)
(b) Women’s Singles; (1)
(c) Mixed Doubles; (2)
(d) Men’s Singles; (1) and
(e) Men’s Doubles. (2)
Therefore the total number of players involved in Round 1 works out to a maximum of 504 (63 Teams x 8 players). This is by no means a small number. And this is competitive badminton, so the number of social players will be many times more. Just an indication of how popular the game is in Singapore.
8.1 The top eight teams from last year’s tournament will be seeded into eight groups. The other registered teams will be drawn at random into the same eight groups.
8.2 The first round will be played on a Group Double Knockout System.
8.3 The winning teams from both winners’ and losers’ brackets in the first round would be placed in the second round fixtures by balloting, in accordance to the balloting format for Inter-Constituency Games (ICG) 2011.
8.4 The second round will be played on a Group Single Knockout System. The best four teams from the second round will proceed to the final round.
8.5 The final round will be played on a Single Knockout System.
I wasn't there yesterday morning at Tampinese to witness the Round 1 matches but here are the results:
Three seeded teams namely, Yew Tee, Pasir Ris East, Pasir Ris West advanced to the next round. While Chua Chu Kang got a bye, two other seeded teams, Siglap and Chong Pang lost to Sembawang and Mountbaten respectively. A friend who is playing as a reserve in the Sembawang team said they have many good players from China and Indonesia (?).
Unfortunately, the detailed scores have not been released.
Sembawang will meet Hougang in Group 5 on Fri, 15 April at 7.30 pm. Matches for the other teams are spaced out at different dates.
Will Sembawang be the dark horse this year and go on to win the tournament?
It is hard to say at such an early stage of the tournament which is expected to last till next month.

Heard Bai Song is playing for Sembawang and the mixed doubles pair is a Japanese/Chinese combo?
Was there on Sunday afternoon and the matches were boring. I wish the order of play was the other way round starting with the men doubles instead.
imho the teams should be allowed to play all 5 matches since quite a number of players travelled all the way from the other end of Singapore and its a pity the players didnt get to play.

It seems the previous requirement that a player must be a resident in the constituency/district to qualify to represent the team is no longer compulsory. So, it must be a free-for-all, with teams trying to 'buy' the best players available. So Sembawang was lucky to 'catch' tank2008's coach, Bai Song.
I wonder which other teams have foreign talents as well?

Changi Simei has a number of Indonesians. Believe they play in Yong An Park.
David, do you know a tall Chinese player with a crew cut? He partnered Shafiq in the men doubles match.
04-18-2011, 10:36 PM #28
Syafiq's partner is Huang Chao if I remember correctly, heard from Scanner. I can help confirm this on this Sunday.
What's the detail game scores for all 5 matches?

A lot of our players complained the new match sequence. The organizer should put men's doubles first and let young players got chance to play and fight, not old players more exhausted to play every match than young guys.
My suggestion is to play all 5 matches during 1st round. Thus everybody got chance to play. People asked why some of our good players didn't play inter-con. I said it takes almost 2 hours from Yew Tee to Tampines. If can't play a single game and just sit, then come back. It is a waste of time.
Look at those international team event, like Thomas cup, all 5 matches are played during group play. That's better. If those young and powerful guys got no chance to play this year, I doubt they will have passion to attend next year. What a pity! Our Singaporean players lack a good event to improve.
