    Those going to the Toa Payoh sports hall by MRT should alight at Toa Payoh MRT station and take a short walk through the pedestrian mall (HDB Hub). The Toa Payoh sports hall is next to the Toa Payoh swimming complex/Toa Payoh Gardens. If you are interested in getting some badminton equipment, Classic sports/Safra Toa Payoh, is next to the sports hall/stadium.

    Serla probably has known about it....I will be around in town during that period. But, I am not sure whether I will watch the Singapore Satellite because of the tight schedule I have this time. Perhaps we can meet up once again in one of the days for dinner.

    Similarity between Wushu and Badminton

    I can't help noticing in pic.12 how similar the holding of the Chinese sword by the lady in white, is to that of forehand grip in badminton.

    With the non-weapon hand used as a balance, the similarity extends further. But I think by far the more important aspects of Chinese wushu are the footwork and stability, something that the badminton exponent could study further and learn from.

    With 'animal-like movements' including jumping, lunging, 'flying', sudden jabbing/dabbing with the peak for birds, diving, etc, for various schools/styles of wushu, this makes it all the more interesting. :D

    Hello,

    Anybody with news on when the draw will be out. Hong Kong Open's draw is out and the tournament date is the same as this Satellite.

    Perhaps this reflects the difference between the organizers standard of a 5 Star tournament and an A grade satellite???

    Hope the draw will be out soon.

    Cheers.

    Hi BaddyNut

    Didn't know that you're also interested in this one. Anyone in particular that you have in mind?

    Agree that the SBA is unusually slow in coming out with the draw. Don't know what's holding them up, but I expect it to be out very soon as the competition is on Monday. :)

    Loh,

    I'm always interested when Malaysian Back up squad is involved. Especially this time when Singapore will be defending its fort. I expect lots on Singapore entries and see how the Singapore national Program fares.

    are Kendrick & Ronald competing or are they opting for the more prestigeous event?

    According to the just released Draw List, some interesting info on the Men's Singles can be gathered:

    Nine countries will be participating with the number of participants in brackets:

    Main Draw: MAS (18), SIN (11), INA (9), PHI (6), THA (4), VIE (3), TPE (2), EGY (Egypt) (2) and WAL (Wales) (1).

    Qualifying: SIN (19), INA (9), TPE (8), PHI (2), ENG (England) (2), and THA (1).

    Notable Absentees: China, South Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

    Good turnout from the Philippines. Pleasant surprise from Egypt, England and Wales.

    The number of seedings with Indonesia seeded at both No.1 & 2, among others are: MAS (8), INA (3), THA (3), SIN (1) and WAL (1).

    Apart from host Singapore which has a total of 30 participants (11M+19Q) in the MS event, Malaysia and Indonesia each sent in a total of 18 players. However, Malaysia has the most number of seeded players (8) who will compete against the no.1 and 2 seeds, Jeffer Rosobin and Tommy Sugiarto from Indonesia. Unfortunately, the real test is not available with the absence of powerhouses China and South Korea.

    WS Participants and Countries

    A total of 51 ladies (28M, 23Q) will be vying for the WS crown.

    The breakdown (M - Main Draw; Q - Qualifying; S - Seeded players):

    01. Singapore - 21 (9M, 12Q, 3S)
    02. Malaysia - 13 (9M, 4Q, 1S)
    03. Indonesia - 5 (4M, 1Q, 2S)
    04. Thailand - 4 (3M, 1Q 2S)
    05. Egypt - 3 (2M 1Q)
    06. Switzerland - 2(2Q)
    07. Taipeh - 1 (1Q)
    08. Vietnam - 1 (1M)
    09. Philippines - 1 (1Q)

    The 8 seeded players are:

    01. Julia Wong Pei Xian (MAS)
    02. Xing Aiying (SIN)
    03. Maria Kristin Yulianti (INA)
    04. Gu Juan (SIN)
    05. Fu Mingtian (SIN)
    06. Porntip Buranapraseatsuk (THA)
    07. Melicia Kurniawan (INA)
    08. Sitee Prucksapatsarnsilp (THA)

    Quite normal to have more young players from Southeast Asia, especially those countries located nearer to Singapore.

    We will see who will emerge as the top four players who will most likely be the future stars of their respective countries. :)
