PROGRAMME 2019

A Collaboration Between MOE & PERODUA

OVERVIEW

photo

The Badminton Talent Development Programme is a new collaborative initiative between the Ministry of Education Malaysia and PERODUA which provides a highly-competitive badminton tournament for Malaysian schoolchildren between the age of 9 to 12. Along with its philosophy and objective to unearth and broaden the country’s new talent pool in badminton, PERODUA embarked on a five-year mission via the Badminton Talent Development Programme which started off with the inaugural edition in 2018. The second edition of the Badminton Talent Development Programme concluded successfully recently with the staging of the National Finals on 20th October 2019 in Ipoh, about 200km away from Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur with 224 players from 16 regions making up the final list.

The 2019 edition commenced in March 2019 where coaches in each states successfully trained 2,800 primary schoolchildren at 70 identified badminton development centres nationwide. This year’s edition was even more competitive with the addition of the 12 year-old category, along with the existing categories in the first Badminton Talent Development Programme of the age 8 to 11. For the first time, the Under-12 challenge saw the inclusion of the boys’ singles, girls’ singles and for the first time, mixed doubles categories.

ORGANISERS & SPONSOR’S COMMENT

Organiser's Comment

This is indeed an exciting long-term badminton journey which we believe will undoubtedly yield enormous benefits for Malaysia. The Ministry is truly excited with the outcome of the Badminton Talent Development Programme which has successfully leapt to higher levels this year as compared to the inaugural edition. This was due to the increased number of categories contested following the introduction of the 12 year-old age group. The Badminton Talent Development Programme is a perfect pathway for our young kids to progress further, gain control over their skills and strengthen their confidence as they scale their way up to greater heights.

With 2,800 schoolchildren from all over the country involved since March 2019, I foresee that the programme holds great future for Malaysian badminton, mainly due to the undying passion shown by our sponsor and prime mover PERODUA. Most importantly, the enthusiasm from players, parents, teachers, coaches, state agencies, sports councils and the related stakeholders in making this programme a successful venture for the second year running has given us the strength and confidence to strive harder for the good of Malaysian badminton.

TOURNAMENT REPORT

It was a day filled with thrills, fun and excitement as 224 finalists made their way to the Arena Badminton Perak in Ipoh for the conclusion of the four-day National Finals on 20th October. The arena itself was full of life and vibration, providing a perfect stage for players to strut their stuff on the courts. Local spectators and fans turned up in droves with full support to witness the country’s future badminton stars in action. Loud chants and cheers were the order of the day as 11 categories were contested in the finale. The players’ excitement and commitment were clearly evident as they gave their hearts out on the courts in pursuit of top honours for their respective states and contingents.

The tournament started off with the Girls’ Singles Under 9 category, which saw Penangite Mirza Batrisyia Aghnia Nazri brushing aside Sabahan Chua Jing Xuan 21-13, 21-8 in slightly over 19 minutes, followed by the Boys’ Singles Under-9. The Girls’ Single Under-11, Mixed Doubles Under-12 and the Boys’ Single Uunder-9 saw keenly contested competitions where players were dragged into deciders.

Off the courts, various side activities took place around the venue including PERODUA exhibition booth, free car inspection for Perodua car owners and sales of tournament merchandise.

The tournament ended on a high note in the afternoon with special parade by players by all 16 participating contingents followed by the colourful award ceremony where the winners’ trophies were presented by Dr. Ahmad Rafee Che Kassim, Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad and the Ministry of Education’s Sports, Co-curiculum and Arts Division Director Encik Zainal Abas. Happy and smiling faces were all around as contingents and players head home to their respective states with sweet memories and gear themselves up for another exciting edition next year.

“The great thing about the Badminton Talent Development Programme is that it helps the schoolchildren instil good values such as respect, discipline, determination, sportsmanship, punctuality, humility and cleanliness apart from living a balanced lifestyle of sports, studies and family. As a proud Malaysian company, Perodua is very happy to be working with the ministry.” said Dato’ Zainal Abidin Ahmad.

Great efforts and countless hours were put in to ensure the smooth organisation of the second edition of the Badminton Talent Development Programme. Thank God, the programme concluded successfully with little hiccups. It was all due to passion and commitment from all parties, mainly players, coaches, parents, schools, teachers, the Ministry of Education as well as the national and local sports agencies and associations, who shared the common mission of elevating the standard of Malaysian badminton at the developmental stage.

Over four days of competition from 17th to 20th October, fans and spectators were treated with exciting badminton showcase and truly enjoyed the amazing skills displayed by these young players. The vibrant atmosphere at the arena contributed further to the successful staging of the National Finals, which saw the participation of 16 contingents from all over Malaysia with 20 players ranging from the age of 9 to 12 year-old representing each contingent.

As a proud Malaysian company, PERODUA is extremely happy to be working with the Ministry of Education to potentially change the lives of these children. Their resilience, skills and potential were evident and we are confident that they will go on to achieve greatness for the nation.

All in, 341 matches were played with 2,800 school children, 140 coaches and 224 finalists involved leading up to the National Finals. The number of finalists has significantly increased from the previous 188 with 56 winners as compared to 44 last year, proving that the programme can be regarded as one of the premier junior badminton competitions in the country.
