National badminton opening reset

/ 11:34 PM October 18, 2015

The opening of the 2015 Bingo Bonanza National Open badminton tournament scheduled today at Rizal Memorial Badminton Hall has been reset due to inclement weather spawned by Typhoon “Lando.”

The opening matches, featuring two men’s singles, four men’s doubles and one mixed doubles, will instead be held Tuesday starting at 9 a.m. after the meeting among team managers and coaches.


Defending champion Gelita Castilo of UP-Diliman, Maynilad’s Pauline Tan and Sarah Barredo and Airah Albo of PBA-Smash head the women’s Open singles cast as the top four seeds.

Tipped to slug it out for the men’s singles crown are reigning titlist Marky Alcala, Kevin Cudiamat, Kevin Dalisay and R-Jay Ormilla.


The National Open marks the second straight year of the annual event’s revival.

The Philippine Badminton Association is focused on putting up bigger national tournaments and has temporarily shelved plans of staging expensive international events to concentrate on developing local players.
