Having introduced a new World Tour calendar, Badminton World Federation is now looking to bring more changes to ensure that the sport remains competitive in the fast-paced, cutting-edge sports-entertainment industry, and has proposed a new scoring system as well as reduction in on-court coaching among other changes.
The proposals will come up for discussion and voting at BWF’s Annual General Meeting scheduled to be held on May 19 in Bangkok.
While most other proposals have the backing of all stake holders, the change in the scoring system would be the main point of debate at the meeting with the Asian Bloc already against the proposal.
BWF had been experimenting with the 11x5 scoring system since 2014, after it felt that the matches were going too long in the current system, which was introduced in 2006. The current system was a major change from the side-out scoring system. “Changing the scoring system – with specific focus on elite international tournaments – is an essential part of this strategic, multi-dimensional plan to innovate our competition rules,” BWF president Poul-Erik Hoyer said in a release on Wednesday.
