Nagpur to host All India Sub-Junior Ranking Badminton tournament

Nagpur will host All India Sub-Junior Ranking Badminton tournament in July.

After the successful hosting of the 82nd edition of Senior National Badminton Championship from November 1 to 7 last year, city badminton fraternity will get another chance to witness quality display from top ranked junior national shuttlers. Nagpur will host the All India Sub-Junior (Under-15 and Under-17) Ranking badminton tournament from July 23 to 29. The qualifying rounds will be held from July 23 to 25, while the main draw matches will commence from July 26. It will be season’s first sub-junior tourney, which will be held under the auspices of Maharashtra Badminton Association (MBA) and Badminton Association of India (BAI).

The Nagpur District Badminton Association (NDBA) had bid for the sub-junior ranking tournament few months ago and were quite hopeful of getting the approval from BAI.

The venue has not been declared yet, it will most probably be held at Divisional Sports Complex. The big indoor hall at Mankapur had successfully staged the Senior Nationals six months ago. It is for the first time in Nagpur badminton history that any sub-junior national-level tourney is being played in the region.
