Ciputra challenge attracts 300

HA NOI  (VNS) — The Ciputra Hanoi-Yonex Sunrise Vietnam International Challenge will be held from March 25-30 at Cau Giay Gymnasium.

The annual event, endorsed by the Badminton World Federation and Badminton Asia Confederation, will have five categories – singles and doubles matches for men and women, and mixed doubles.

Organisers said nearly 300 athletes of 13 teams including hosts Viet Nam will compete in the event.

World No 9 Nguyen Tien Minh is the top men's singles seed. It is the second time that he is taking part in one of the two richest tournaments organised in Viet Nam.

Malaysia's Chun Seang Tan, world No 50, and Tzu Wei Wang, No 67, of Chinese Taipei are second and third seeds.

In the women's draw, Chia Hsin Lee of Chinese Taipei, Hana Ramadhini of Indonesia and Viet Nam's Le Thu Huyen are the top three seeds, respectively.

The winners will walk away with up to 4,000 points to strengthen their world ranking.

Last year, Malaysian Kwong Beng Chan and Hana Ramadhini of Singapore took the men's and women's singles titles.

Badminton fans can watch the matches for free at the stadium. The matches will also be aired live on local television channels.— VNS
