Missing funds at Sri Lanka Badminton

16 January, 2022

The Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Western Province Badminton Association has been put off due to the findings of mismanagement of funds by the hierarchy of the Association.

The Sunday Observer learns that the news of the missing funds had been reported to the Sports Ministry that is expected to conduct an inquiry into the case.

Meanwhile, the controlling body for badminton has enlisted a coach from Indonesia who will take charge of the national pool until the Commonwealth Games are held. The national pool was formed after conducting trials on Friday and it is being hoped the best set of players will be selected. Some of these players facing selection will be the Karunaratne brothers Niluka and Dinuka.

The Sunday Observer also learns that Sri Lanka Badminton (SLB) has recently hired a manager to oversee the work carried out at the office of SLB.

However, Trevor Reckerman the CEO is also retained in the same position but some of his duties will be transferred to the manager.
