Almost everyone in this badminton crazed country knows about Thomas Cup, Malaysian Open, and All England, but have you heard about Axiata Cup?
The Axiata Cup is a new regional badminton event created for the Axiata Group – one of Asia’s largest telecom companies, and most importantly, the biggest names in badminton in our country are in. That of course, includes world number one Datuk Lee Chong Wei and also our top doubles pair in Kien Keat-Boon Heong.
The good news is, Malaysia is now through to the semi-finals and will duke it out against the Indonesian teams on 31st March to 1st April at Stadium Badminton Cheras.
- 31st March, 2pm: INA Rajawali vs MAL Leopards
- 1st April, 8pm: INA Garuda vs MAL Tigers
So go there and cheer for Team Malaysia!
If you get there before 4pm, be sure to check out “Gateminton” - where you can beat your opponent and get cash prizes. The more rounds you win, the more cash prizes you pick up.
This just reminds me of times I spent playing badminton right outside my old house in Penang. Good times!
