 'RSC has what it takes to be a national-level training hub' The newly constructed 'Sky Court' was inaugurated by Badminton Association of India (BAI) president Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma Sunday.

Kochi: The multi-functional Regional Sports Center (RSC) ticks the right boxes to be a training base for the national badminton squad, said Badminton Association of India (BAI) president Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma here on Sunday.

He was inaugurating the newly constructed ‘Sky Courts’, named after Prakash Padukone and Saina Nehwal, at the Rajeev Gandhi Indoor Stadium following the opening of the Manorama World Senior Badminton Championships.

“If we want to nurture young talents, we need to improve the overall standard of our training facilities and courts. The Regional Sports Center is a good example of how a facility of international standards could be set up through public-private partnerships. We need more such initiatives for the overall development of sports in the country,” Sarma said.

Echoing his views, India's chief national coach and former All England champion, P. Gopichand opined that training centers equipped with modern facilities such as the RSC would certainly improve the players’ level of game.

Former national champion U. Vimal Kumar said state-of-the-art centers like the RSC would give much-needed fillip to the country’s aspirations to produce world class shuttlers.

Venugopal Mahanlingam, technical expert, Badminton World Federation, S. A. S. Navaz, secretary of the RSC, BAI vice-president S. Muralidharan, and BAI general secretary Anup Narang spoke on the occasion.
