No skirts until Dec

The BWF Council in its meeting in Qingdao, China decided not to introduce the regulations regarding the mandatory use of skirts and to “further investigate the new clothing regulations after accepting a recommendation from the Women in Badminton Committee.”

The mandatory ruling was initially supposed to be implemented on May 1 but after feedback from various quarters, was deferred by one a month to June 1. The rule had been fiercely opposed by India and some other Asian nations. India’s top doubles player Jwala Gutta said the BWF has done the right thing.
