I distinctly understand that my pre-eminent stature and passion for the game has conferred me with the honor of being the president of TNBA.
I thank everyone who has reposed faith in my abilities and I am obliged to return the favour by serving TamilNadu Badminton to my full capacity. I have spent enough effort to comprehend the rich tradition and the pathway of TNBA through its good and bad times. Be that as it may, I am not so glad for the fact that we haven’t had enough representations at National Level either at play or at administration.
Having seen the talent aplenty in our state, I can’t help thinking there is not enough motivation and guidance to groom players. I have therefore instructed the committee and the officials to be as fleet footed as the players and work overtime. I am delighted, in no time, they have started to deliver.
On a happy note, TNBA has hosted two National Ranking Tournaments, the prestigious South Zone Inter State Championships, implemented Tournament Software for a fair, transparent and structured manner to conduct tournaments, established a new Ranking System to favor points to a larger pool of players, conducted state camps before all championships and Inter – State competitions; all in just the last few months of 2014 and I hope it served as an antidote to the previous delays. The prospects of 2015 is seemingly very bright and I promise to serve you in any which way possible.
