KUALA LUMPUR:  Badminton players and others linked to the sport face possible lifetime bans for betting on or fixing matches under toughened rules announced by the Badminton World Federation (BWF).

The BWF also made it an offence not to report knowledge of illegal betting or failure to co-operate with BWF investigations as they bid to avoid the plight of tennis, which has been rocked by match-fixing allegations.
