BADMINTON Fiji is trying its best to revive the sport in the country by recruiting more players.
They are doing this by inviting interested individuals to come and train and play with the national reps.
Badminton Fiji committee member Patricia Mallam said they had been having regular games but with only a handful of people. "We have been playing a while now but we have less than 10 players," Mallam said.
"We would like to increase the number to 15 or 20 or even more if individuals respond," she said.
She said interested individuals could even get a chance to be part of the national team if they had the interest in the sport.
"We are not only targeting young players but even adults as well. Whoever comes and plays with us and can get a chance to be part of the national team.
"This is in case we are short on national reps then we will have to look elsewhere for players so if people come and train with the current national reps they have a better chance of being considered for the national team."
Mallam said interested participants only needed to bring along a pair of canvas shoes when they came to play at the Yat Sen Secondary School Hall in Flagstaff, Suva. "Once we get the numbers close to 20, we can have regular competition which will develop our skills as players.
"Everything is provided, you don't need to buy anything, just come to Yat Sen Hall with your canvas and play badminton with us."
