    Keep an eye..

    ..or for that matter, keep both eyes open for a Li Ning booth.
    My hunch says, there will be a LN booth and they will be selling Li Ning products.
    Also, see this thread (post #411):

    I am not an insider in this kind of things but I would think that one of the "perks" of being a tournament sponsor is the right to setup booth selling merchandise.

    I know from chatting with the badminton shops that Lining stuff will be available in Singapore and that conversation happened a few weeks ago.

    From a business perspective, this is a great time to launch their product. Most badminton enthusiast will be going for the event and you have a large captive audience.

    Given their extraordinary (and I'd say, ridiculous) pricing, Li Ning is unlikely to make off with too many captives from Singapore :eek:

    And, of course, it won't be of much use to them if at least one of their mascots don't make it to the title ;)

    Li-Ning will surely be selling their stuff at SIS. Afterall, i understand a certain racket dealer in Spore already has LN goods in the warehouse.;)

    LN shirts would look supper if you have a 6-pack and not a 1-pack beer belly:D:pOn the other hand, you may want to invest in a LN shirt and give it to a hot looking chick playing baddy in a hot afternoon day in MAS:p:D;)

    There's Lining booth at the indoor stadium. However the stuff there are very expensive. Racquets range from $99 - $329 and that's for the professional series. The ones that are used by the China national team cost more than $400 with the model used by Lin Dan costing $489 !

    The shuttlecocks are really too expensive, it cost S$57 ! I think the shoes on the other hand is at least more acceptable, I saw one that goes for S$99 and it is very light. My Victor cost me S$90 and I wouldn't mind paying S$9 for the Lining.

    I repeat my argument that this is just a overpriced China product pretending to be a global brand. They appear to believe that starting off with 'expensive' price-tags will earn them a spot alongside the dollar-brands like Nike, Reebok and Converse.

    Such pricing is unlikely to result in booming sales.
    But, perhaps, they don't want booming sales rightaway.

    With government-aided deep pockets, Li Ning can afford to do this.
    The question is: for how long?

    Rajiv Ouseph of England

    By Rod Gilmour


    The 22 year-old two-time national champion failed to drop a game in his two group matches before twice coming from behind to beat Estonia's Raul Must, the world No 48, in the final 21-19, 22-20.

    Ouseph, a former European junior champion now regarded as one of Badminton England's leading hopes for London 2012, won the Volant D'Or in Toulouse last weekend, adding to his Open victories in Scotland, Ireland and Canada since the end of November

    Ouseph's purple patch has also seen him rise to a career best world No 30, as he bids to break into the top 20 in the build-up to the Olympics and overtake compatriot Andrew Smith, the current world No 22.

    Ouseph joins England’s world No 22 Andrew Smith in the first round line-up in Singapore - but once again the luck of the draw has deserted the Malaysian-based Hampshire man as he has landed world No 1 and top seed Lee Chong Wei of Malaysia in the first round.

    Men's Singles Final:
    Rajiv Ouseph (Eng) bt Raul Must (Est) 21-19 22-20
