Badminton is on its way up!

Salam, good day. Yonex Brunei Open Ike Shio Cup 2010 begins this morning at Hassanal Bolkiah National Sports Complex Indoor Stadium. The tournament which has attracted more than 400 participants is jointly organised by Brunei National Badminton Association and Nippon Badminton Association and fully supported by the Japanese Embassy in Brunei Darussalam as well as the Ministry of Culture Youth and Sports. What makes the tournament very insteresting? It's all about the money! The total amount of $10,300 of cash prize is up for grabs. Also, what does Ike-Shio stands for? Ike-Shio is actually the name for two Japanese national shuttlers (mixed doubles) Reiko Shiota and Shintaro Ikeda. They will be here as well for the exhibition match. To all badminton enthusiasts, you are most welcome to watch the tournament from the 24th-29th January:)

Standard operation procedure

This is Brunei's potential

Yonex is still world's No.1!

The way they play is more mature than their age is

The dead ball with flying feathers!

This is (gold) two very good shuttlers

Not only the players are being groomed, but the umpire as well.

This is the junior shuttler not to be easily beaten *very good*

Haha, I can hardly see this in Brunei. Badminton is on its way up!

Proper training would make them a better player
