Badminton News: Ticket sale for Badminton Asia Championship begins

New Delhi, Mar 30 (PTI) Commonwealth Games Organising Committee Chairman Suresh Kalmadi and Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit today launched the sale of tickets for the Yonex-Sunrise Badminton Asia Championship to be held here from April 12.

The first ticket of the championship, to be held at the state-of-the-art DDA Siri Fort Badminton Stadium as a CWG test event, was given to Sheila Dikshit and Kalmadi by Badminton Association of India President V K Verma.

Kalmadi said he expected the Championship to be a roaring success.

"BAI hosted World Junior Championship in Pune and World Championship in Hyderabad successfully. By bringing the Asian Championship as the test event for the Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi, BAI has ensured that the sport stays in the public eye," he said.

Dikshit said she was confident the event would draw full houses, especially since Indian ace Saina Nehwal is playing.
