“Play till you drop” can be applied to this team at Sathupradit 57 Badminton Court in Bangkok. Although they spend only two days a week, their four-hour session will certainly let you soak in sweat. If four hours still cannot satisfy their club members, they usually continue their games until 2 a.m. of the next day. Each session normally has 30-40 people with a wide range of badminton skills. The team is open for walk-in players.

BANGKOK – Thailand’s world number four in women’s singles, Ratchanok Intanon, will miss a chance to defend her title at impending YONEX-SUNRISE India Open 2014 because of an unrecovered left calf injury.

Kanitsara Ngoensrisuk, the executive director of Ratchanok’s club Banthongyod Badminton School, said Ratchanok has not fully recovered and will not be fit in time before the tournament begins next week. YONEX-SUNRISE India Open 2014 with prize money of 250,000 dollars offered will take place in New Delhi on April 1-6.

Ratchanok won over Germany’s Juliane Schenk in the final round of YONEX-SUNRISE India Open 2013.
