BAM's new ruling on independent players will only begin next year – The Star Online

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia’s independent shuttlers have received a brief reprieve.

Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) president Datuk Seri Norza granted an extension for club players to compete in the Superseries and Grand Prix Gold tournaments until end of December.

“Last week, we decided to implement a new rule that prevent club players from competing in Superseries and GP Gold with immediate effect but I retract that,” said Norza yesterday.

“We’ve exempted a few but there are others who have sponsors’ obligation. They’ve already entered their names for the upcoming tournaments. We’ll allow them to compete.”

Next year, only BAM players are allowed to play in all tournaments including the Superseries and Grand Prix Gold tournaments.

The new ruling does not apply to independent players who have played for at least one year in the Superseries main draw.

They are Chong Wei Feng, Zulfadli Zulkiffli, Liew Daren, Tan Boon Heong, Lim Khim Wah, Sannatasah Saniru, K. Yogendran and Mohd Arif Abdul Latif.
