Nigeria, 10 others battle for honours at Lagos International Badminton Classics

Nigeria will have another opportunity to test might with some of the world’s best at the third Lagos International Badminton Classics as 10 others countries have signed up for the tournament holding at the Molade Okoya-Thomas Hall of Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos.

With an increased prize money of $20,000, this year’s tournament serves off on July 26 to 29 with Israel’s Masha Zilberman, ranked 48 in the men’s ranking leading the top players to the mega city of Lagos. In the ladies’ event, Egypt’s Hadia Ann will be aiming for the title ahead of others.

According to the chairman of Lagos State Badminton Association and President-elect of the Nigeria Badminton Federation, Frank Orbhi, the classics would attract a great assemblage to best players in the world and it is a unique platform for Nigerian players to compete for honour and at the same time improve their individual ratings.

“This is the third edition of the classics and prize money is the highest to be won on the continent of Africa. Several top world class players from the counties participating will be on hand to display their prowess on the court later this month. I will want to advise all Nigerian players to make best use of this platform provided by Lagos State Government coming especially in the wake of economic recession facing the nation today,” he said.

The expected participating teams are Israel, Italy, Egypt, Uganda, Cameroon, Ghana, Republic of Benin, Sri Lanka and Portugal.

Other top ranked players expected in Lagos are India’s Subhalan Dey (73) and Italy’s Rosano Maddaloci (152). In the ladies section, Grace Gabnel and Dorcas Adenekan (298) will lead Nigeria contingent.

Over 75 men while 36 ladies will do battle at the four-day championship.
