KUALA LUMPUR: Dry weather and the haze have foiled the Badminton Association of Malaysia’s (BAM) big plan to hold a motivational camp in Taman Negara to strengthen team camaraderie among the players.
The gathering in the woods was scheduled for March 12-15, but for now, it has been postponed indefinitely.
The plan to stay away from all distractions in the city was in preparation for four major tournaments this year – Thomas Cup Finals (May), Commonwealth Games in Glasgow (July), World Championships in Copenhagen (August) and the Asian Games in Incheon (September).
BAM general manager Kenny Goh confirmed the plan is off and they are hoping to find new suitable dates.
However, with so many tournaments in the calendar this year, it is going to be difficult to get everyone together on the same dates.
Next week, most players will be off to Johor Baru to compete in the Malaysia Open Grand Prix Gold.
