Badminton Association of India to Sponsor 28 Emerging Players for International Exposure

- Advertisement -

The Badminton Association of India (BAI) has allocated financial support to 28 Indian badminton players, including Chirag Sen and Anmol Kharb, the champions of the senior national men’s and women’s categories. This initiative aims to assist Indian players ranked between 26 and 75 in the BWF world rankings, as well as top performers from the Senior National championships who are not part of the national camp, enabling them to participate in international tournaments throughout the year. The funding is made possible through BAI’s collaboration with the Rural Electrification Corporation (REC). Notable players such as Unnati Hooda, the champion of the Abu Dhabi Masters, and Tanvi Sharma, who secured a silver medal in the 2023 Badminton Asia U-17 Junior championships, are among the selected 28 players in both singles and doubles categories. Their selection is based on outstanding performances in various tournaments.

The Badminton Association of India (BAI) will provide full financial assistance to each of the shuttlers for their participation in these tournaments.
