Badminton-Proposal to change scoring system narrowly defeated in BWF vote

“Our membership has spoken and despite the very small margin in which the two-thirds majority was not reached, the BWF respects the outcome to retain the three games to 21 points scoring system,” BWF president Poul-Erik Hoyer said. “It is now the second time such a proposal has not been approved,” Hoyer added. Hoyer and KhunyingPatama Leeswadtrakul were also re-elected unopposed to the role of BWF president and deputy president while 20 BWF council members were confirmed for the 2021 to 2025 cycle.
