    Sadly Yeo lost to the Dane, 15-21, 22-20, 12-21. Both Yeo and Loh can’t seem to advance beyond the first two rounds in 500 and above tour.

    SINGAPORE - AirBadminton made its official debut in Singapore at the Badminton Festival held at HeartBeat @ Bedok on Saturday (Nov 23), following the new sport's unveiling by the Badminton World Federation (BWF) in May.

    Singapore Badminton Association (SBA) vice-president Robert Lim said: "Badminton has a rich history in Singapore and many people love and play the game regularly.

    "However, players are limited by the number of badminton courts we have here in land-scarce Singapore. With AirBadminton, we would be able to play it in more areas such as parks, gardens and beaches and raise the popularity of the sport among Singaporeans."

    Unlike traditional indoor badminton, AirBadminton involves a unique shuttlecock that is resistant to wind. As such, people of all ages can play it outdoors on hard, grass and sand surfaces, in parks, gardens, streets, playgrounds and even beaches.

    The rules and game play of AirBadminton is largely similar to badminton game, with some slight differences. AirBadminton can be played as a singles game, doubles and even triples.

    A game is decided over five sets, with the first player to score nine points winning the set. However, the number of points and sets to win a game can be varied, just as in traditional badminton competitions.

    Supported by the SBA, People's Association (PA) and ActiveSG, the launch of AirBadminton at HeartBeat @ Bedok also saw friendly matches involving national intermediate squad players Lucas Saw, Qayum Noor, Tan Shi Bin, Johaan Prajogo, Sabrina Lee and Alexis Lee in an outdoor court.

    Teams also competed to be crowned the first-ever AirBadminton Singapore champions.

    Former SBA president Lee Yi Shyan, who is also an MP for East Coast GRC, said in a video played at the event: "We are happy this launch has got the support of the BWF, SBA, ActiveSG, and PA, and we hope that it would be popular among all our residents and amongst sportsmen and women."

    Hendra Setiawan
    Indonesia's Hendra Setiawan was the costliest player bought by the Pune 7 Aces at the auction for Premier Badminton League 2020 on Tuesday.

    The No.2 ranked men's doubles player, who is the reigning World Champion is a 2008 Olympic gold medallist and a two-time Asian Games gold medal winner was signed for his base price of ₹40 lakhs.

    He will be spearheading the men's doubles department for the Pune-based franchise along with the young Chirag Shetty, who was retained by the team for ₹15.5 lakh. Shetty has been in amazing form this year, having clinched a title win at the Thailand Open 2019 win and finishing as the runner-up at the 2019 French Open. Along with his doubles partner Satwiksairaj Rankireddy, Chirag currently is ranked seventh in the doubles category.

    In yet another interesting addition to the Pune team, England's Chris Adcock will not be seen playing with his regular mixed doubles partner and wife Gabrielle Adcock after the former was drafted into the Aces team for ₹32 lakh, a slight increment from his base price of ₹30 lakh. Additionally, the Pune-based franchise also procured the services of India's M.R.Arjun for his base price of ₹2 lakh.

    The men's singles department will be led by Loh Kean Yew, whose services were snapped up by the Aces after a long bidding war at the auction. Starting with a base price of ₹10 lakh, the young Singapore player was finally sold for ₹36 lakh, and he will be joined by Kazumasa Sakai (Japan) and Mithun Manjunath (India) at the Aces.

    India's Rituparna Das also attracted interest from quite a few franchises before the Aces landed the final bid of ₹8 lakh, a steep increment from her base price of ₹2.5 lakh. Rituparna will be joined by Vietnam's Vu Thị Trang in the women's singles division.

    The mixed doubles champion at the Korea Masters 2019 and Chinese Taipei Open 2019, Tse Ying Suet will also be a part of the Aces and will be joined by Kuhoo Garg in the women's mixed event.

    SEA Games: Indonesian badminton women’s team gets silver after losing to Thailand

    Indonesian women's doubles pair Ni Ketut Mahadewi Istarani (right) and Apriyani Rahayu plays in a team event final against Thailand at the 30th Southeast Asian Games in the Philippines on Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2019. (PBSI/PBSI)
    Indonesia failed to win gold in the badminton women’s team final at the 30th Southeast Asian (SEA) Games in the Philippines on Tuesday after losing to defending champion Thailand 3-1.

    Thailand’s victory this year gives it four consecutive finals wins at the Games.

    Indonesia opened Tuesday’s best-of-five battle a bit rough after its top singles shuttler Gregoria Mariska Tunjung lost 21-13, 12-21, 21-14 to former number one Ratchanok Intanon.

    Ni Ketut Mahadewi Istarani and Apriyani Rahayu, however, made it equal with a 21-17, 21-18 doubles win against Rawinda Prajongjai and Puttita Supajirakul.

    Singles shuttler Fitriani failed to carry the momentum, losing 21-8, 21-10 to Busanan Ongbamrungphan.

    In what turned out to be the deciding match, doubles pair Siti Fadia Silva and Ribka Sugiarto lost in straight games 21-8, 21-17 to Chayanit Chaladchalam and Phataimas Muenwong, losing their chance to prolong the final.

    “I feel like we were being held down by opponents and we could not get out of it. In the second game we found our rhythm but we rushed it,” said Ribka, adding that the loss was not due to nerves.

    A fifth and final match was not played.

    Indonesia won the bronze medal at the 2017 SEA Games in Malaysia after losing to the host team in the semifinals.

    Indonesia’s last SEA Games gold in the women’s team category was in 2007, when it beat Thailand in the semis en route to a final victory over Singapore.

    MANILA: Singapore bagged another bronze on Monday (Dec 2) after losing to Malaysia in the men's badminton team semi-finals at the 30th SEA Games.

    Team Singapore retained the joint bronze they won in 2017 after falling 3-0 to Malaysia, having lost two singles and a doubles match.

    At Manila's Muntinlupa Sports Complex, Loh Kean Yew lost to Lee Zii Jia 21-18, 21-12 in the first match of the semi-final.

    Doubles Terry Hee Yong Kai and Loh Kean Hean won their first game against Aaron Chia Teng Fong and Soh Wooi Yik, but conceded their next two to lose the match 22-20, 13-21, 16-21.

    Joel Koh Jia Wei then lost to Soong Joo Ven after managing to win just the first game out of three. Koh succumbed 21-14, 8-21, 16-21.

    Earlier, the women's team took home bronze after Indonesia defeated them 3-1.

    Malaysia will face Indonesia at the men's team final on Wednesday, after the latter beat Thailand 3-0.

    Team Singapore has sent its biggest away contingent to the SEA Games this year, with 666 athletes from 48 sports.

    In 2017, Team Singapore’s contingent of 560 athletes in Kuala Lumpur won 58 gold, 59 silver and 71 bronze medals

    Unfortunately, I share your view that our players will find it very difficult to sail through today.

    LKY lost to Shesar recently if my memory serves me right. Let's see whether Jaslyn can repeat her performance and play well just like in the team event.

    Nevertheless, the best of luck to our players!

    I just witnessed LKY beating Thailand's Wangcharoen 16-21, 21-6, 21-9 to enter the Finals.
    LKY made too many unforced errors in G1 but recovered well to overwhelm Wangcharoen in G2 and G3 with his speed and powerful smashes.

    Congrats to LKY and best of luck for finals. Can LKY repeat Singapore's only SEA Games gold by Wong Shoon Keat?

    Was surprised by the scores in game 2 and 3. The Thai seems to switched off completely.

    NEW CLARK CITY, Philippines: Loh Kean Yew booked his place in the men’s singles finals after beating top seed Kantaphon Wangcharoen at the Muntinlupa Sports Complex in Manila on Sunday (Dec 8).

    Despite losing the first set 16-21, Loh bounced back to beat his opponent 21-6, 21-9

    The Thai is currently ranked 13th in the world, while 21-year-old Loh is ranked 30th.

    The result means Loh will improve on his bronze medal finish at the 2015 edition of the Games.

    This is also the first time since 2007 that a Singaporean men’s singles badminton player has reached the SEA Games finals.

    I think LKY lost more times to LZJ on head-to-head count.

    But LKY is quite determined to prove his worth.

    LKY lost out in speed and smashing power. He also lost out at the net. His lifts were poor and allowed the tall LZJ to smash down easily. LZJ deserves to win the gold medal. Congrats to LZJ and to LKY for winning the silver.

    Shuttler Loh Kean Yew eyes a better 2020, after breakthrough year
    [​IMG]

    Dec 10, 2019 06:00 am

    It might be a tad early for making New Year resolutions, but Singapore shuttler Loh Kean Yew already knows what would be among the top of his to-do list for 2020 - to make it an even better year.

    The world No. 30 capped his breakout season with a silver medal in the SEA Games men's singles yesterday, after losing 21-18, 21-18 to 14th-ranked Lee Zii Jia of Malaysia at the Mutinlupa Sports Center in Manila.

    Loh, 22, led for much of the second set before allowing Lee, 21, to claw back.

    Said Loh: "First set, I played quite OK, but I found it kind of wasted because I still made some simple errors that allowed him to get points easily and gain more confidence.

    "Second set, I was leading 11-6, I was quite confident at that time. Maybe after 11 points, I kind of wanted to win too much and just rushed my shots and made so many mistakes... and it's not so easy from then on.

    "I tried to play faster and have more advantage at the front, so I can make him lift (the shuttlecock). Because I'm against the wind, when he lifts, it's easier (for him) to be out."

    When asked to sum up the year, which started with an upset over former world No. 1 Lin Dan, Loh was quick to mention that he had already forgotten about that Thailand Masters victory as he always looks ahead.

    "It's been quite a good year but I want it to be even better next year," he said. "So I'm going to train even harder."

    Malaysia's shuttlers clinched two more golds. Kisona Selvaduray defeated Indonesia's Ruselli Hartawan 20-22, 21-14, 21-13 in the women's singles, while Aaron Chia and Soh Wooi Yik beat Thailand's Bodin Isara and Maneepong Jongjit in the men's doubles.

    Indonesia won the women's and mixed doubles.
