Dubai Sports Council launches badminton tournament for women


DUBAI – The Women’s Sports Committee of Dubai Sports Council has announced a badminton tournament for women, which will take place at Dubai Sports World in the Dubai World Trade Centre on September 19 and 26.

The Women’s Shuttle Time Championship will feature Emirati and expat shuttlers competing in separate categories with draws of 32 each.

Registration for the tournament is open now, through Dubai Sports Council’ official website (Women’s Badminton Championship 2020), and it will close at 32 players in each category.

The tournament will bring the curtains down on the Women’s Shuttle Time Program, which started early August and has helped attract and train a number of Emirati and expatriate ladies in the sport.

“The Women’s Shuttle Time Championship is a culmination of the Women’s Shuttle Time Program that was launched by the Council to train women in badminton, which has become one of the most popular sports in Dubai with a growing number of practitioners of different nationalities,” said Fouzeya Faridoon, Manager of Dubai Sports Council’s Women’s Sports Development section as well as the Women’s Sports Committee.

“The aim of this tournament is to give participants of the Program an opportunity to test their skills in a competitive atmosphere and, at the same time, motivate and encourage, and support them as they continue their development program,” Faridoon said. ICA/PR/Expat Media
