New Delhi:

In an effort to enhance the presentation and appeal of the sport, the International Badminton Federation is once again toying with the idea of making a phenomenal change in the scoring system so as to make it more television and spectator friendly. The IBF's 'Presentation of the Game' Working Group is currently experimenting with various aspects of the sport and the main thrust area of this review is the experimentation with the scoring system, IBF Spokesperson Lindsey Bell said. The Working Group of the IBF has released several permutations of the scoring system in the hope that one among them may be the answer to a long standing search for a format which would appeal the spectators, viewers, sponsors and the television networks, she said. This is the second time that IBF is trying to overhaul the scoring system after its previous attempt failed due to difference of opinions between the players and even officials. (PTI)
