Badminton in United Arab Emirates Part 2 (videos added)

3rd October

After my first article about Badminton in UAE,many visitors asked me about contacts details of Badminton Clubs in Dubai and Abu dhabi. It hints that Badminton is growing up in Dubai or in other parts of UAE and Lovers of Badminton are looking for nearby clubs for playing in every weekend. As Badminton is newly established in UAE,clubs are very few and their charges are sometimes too high to afford by the outsiders.Even the women who are working in Dubai being oversees want to play Badminton but insufficiency in facilities are kicking them out of their hobbies.
If anyone knows well about the clubs please add your comments with clubs contacts details.It would be pretty useful for others.

Here you see one Badminton Court in Dubai ( wooden floor)

Badminton Team:Candian Flight Diverted to reach Delhi, Commonwealth Games 2010.

An ill passenger caused a flight carrying Canada’s badminton players to the Dehli Commonwealth Games to be diverted en route to its European stopover. lol

Canada’s major media outlets today carried a Canadian Press story about the diversion of a flight carrying Canadian badminton players, to the Delhi Commonwealth Games.  According to the article, a passenger became ill on a Toronto-Brussells flight and the plane had to be diverted to Gander, Newfoundland, a scenario vaguely reminiscent of the movie Flight Plan.  The passenger, who was not an athlete, did not reboard the plane when it resumed its journey to Europe a few hours later.
Ironically, Anna Rice was citing a recent dengue fever outbreak among her misgivings about travelling to Delhi but it was a Canadian illness that produced the latest hiccup for Canada’s badminton representation in the Games.

Badminton: Malaysia’s medal bid at C'wealth Games depends on how women perform in Delhi

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia will be banking on the magic of woman doubles shuttler Woon Khe Wei to pull of the unthinkable in the Commonwealth Games badminton competition.
In fact, the 21-year-old Khe Wei and her team-mates hold the key to whether the badminton team can return from New Delhi as the most successful side.At the last Games in Melbourne, Malaysia won four out of the seven gold medals – through men’s singles (Lee Chong Wei), men’s doubles (Koo Kien Keat-Chan Chong Ming), women’s doubles (Wong Pei Tty-Chin Eei Hui) and mixed team.In order to defend the mixed team gold, the women shuttlers will have to live up to expectations.Khe Wei will be partnering the experienced Chin Eei Hui for the first time following an injury to Pei Tty while the other women shuttlers are Wong Mew Choo, Lydia Cheah and Goh Liu Ying.
Khe Wei has pulled of the unexpected once – when she formed a strong partnership with Ng Hui Lin to clinch Malaysia’s first gold medal in 34 years at the Laos SEA Games last year.
And national doubles women’s coach Pang Cheh Chang is hoping that Khe Wei would wave her magic wand again.
“The Khe Wei-Eei Hui partnership will be an interesting one. Both are left-handed players and are playing together for the first time,” said Cheh Chang.
“Eei Hui, being the more experienced one, will have to ensure that their combination gets off to a flying start.”
The Games could probably be Eei Hui’s last outing as the 27-year-old is not expected to feature at the Glasgow Games in 2014.
“I received feedback from Eei Hui that Khe Wei has been complementing her well in training. Khe Wei is physically strong and it all depends on her to bring out her best.
“Hopefully, they will achieve good results for the country,” said Cheh Chang.Khe Wei-Eei Hui have important roles to play in both the individual and mixed team events.Their main challengers in the women’s doubles are England’s Jenny Wallwork-Gabrielle White and Singapore’s Yao Jie-Shinta Mulia Sari.
The Singaporeans did exceptionally well this year when they defied the odds to win their Super Series title in Singapore.
In the women’s singles, however, the odds are stacked against Mew Choo, who is still chasing her first Commonwealth Games individual title.

Robertson flies flag for England - and Delhi

Courtesy Daily Mirror UK,

Badminton veteran Nathan Robertson has been chosen to carry the flag for England in Sunday's Commonwealth Games opening ceremony in Delhi.
Robertson partnered the now-retired Gail Emms to gold in the mixed doubles in Melbourne four years ago.
Robertson, who also won Olympic silver with Emms in Athens in 2004, is competing at his fourth Games in Delhi.
Flying the flag: Robertson has been handed the honour of leading out the England team

Flying the flag: Robertson has been handed the honour of leading out the England team
Robertson said: 'I'm humbled. It's a huge honour and I'm looking forward to leading England into the stadium on Sunday.'
Robertson will partner Jenny Wallwork in the mixed doubles in Delhi.
The pair won a bronze at the European Championships in Manchester in April, their first podium finish.
Robertson will also renew his partnership with Anthony Clark in the mixed doubles. They won silver at the 2004 European Championships and won England's first BWF Super Series title in 2009.

Commonwealth Games 2010: Badminton England seeded behind Malaysia and India

Andy Wood's squad are bidding to recapture the team gold they last won in Manchester eight years ago when they beat Singapore in the Commonwealth final. Four years ago they lost 3-1 to Malaysia in the final.
England face the Falkland Islands and Uganda in their opening two matches on October 4 and if Anthony Clark plays in both matches he will join men's doubles partner Nathan Robertson in England's illustrious 100 club. Only 12 players have so far made 100 or more England appearances.

England then take on Mauritius and then fifth seeds Canada in their two remaining group matches with the top two in each of the four groups going into the quarter-finals.
The match with Canada will have special meaning for Carl Baxter, who is a late replacement for injury-plagued Andrew Smith. Baxter was born in Winnipeg.
Hosts India are drawn in the same group as Scotland and Wales and if the results go to form then England can expect to face Scotland in the quarter-finals and India in the semi-finals.
Robertson, who won the mixed doubles gold with Gail Emms four years ago, is bidding to retain his title with new partner Jenny Wallwork while also bidding for a first men's doubles gold with Clark.
In the women's singles English National champion Elizabeth Cann, who lost the bronze medal play-off for Jersey to Scotland's Susan Egelstaff four years ago, will represent England for the first time in Commonwealth Games badminton.
England’s tally includes a brace of gold medals at the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games.
Nathan Robertson and Gail Emms put their mixed doubles quarter-final exit at Manchester 2002 behind them to take gold in Melbourne.

Jiang wins Japan Open women's badminton title

TOKYO — Unseeded 2002 world junior champion Jiang Yanjiao shocked world number one Wang Xin to win the women's singles title at the Japan Open on Sunday in an all-Chinese final.
The 24-year-old Jiang, who eliminated fellow Chinese Lu Lan and Wang Shixian on her way to the final, came from behind in both games to score a 23-21, 21-18 victory in Tokyo.
"I'm really glad that I won the title in my first final here. It was a tough match, but both of us played our best," said Jiang.
"I just played patiently. That's the key to the victory. We know each other. I planned to change the pace when I am in a difficult situation.
"This victory is very important because the level of our teammates are almost the same. It's tougher to play against my teammate, much tougher than when I play against players from other countries," she added.
It was Jiang's first title this season.
For Wang, who became world number one in the new rankings issued on Thursday, it was a second straight final defeat at the Japan Open.
