Entries invited for the tournament which takes place from Sept 19 to 26.

Women badminton players, both Emirati and expats, have an excellent opportunity to showcase their skills in the forthcoming Women's Shuttle Time Championship starting from September 19 to 26.

The tournament initiated by the Women's Sports Committee of Dubai Sports Council will take place at Dubai Sports World, Dubai World Trade Centre.

Those interested should register through Dubai Sports Council' official website (Women's Badminton Championship 2020).

The tournament will bring the curtains down on the Women's Shuttle Time Programme, which started early August and has helped attract and train a number of Emirati and expatriate ladies in the sport.

"The Women's Shuttle Time Championship is a culmination of the Women's Shuttle Time Program that was launched by the Council to train women in badminton, which has become one of the most popular sports in Dubai with a growing number of practitioners of different nationalities," said Fouzeya Faridoon, manager of Dubai Sports Council's Women's Sports Development section as well as the Women's Sports Committee.

"The aim of this tournament is to give participants of the Programme an opportunity to test their skills in a competitive atmosphere and, at the same time, motivate and encourage, and support them as they continue their development programme," said Faridoon.

Faridoon added: "The Dubai Sports Council is always keen to support and develop women's sports by organising tournaments, training courses and workshops. Indeed, we have been able to achieve a lot of success in this field and the number of women practicing sports keeps increasing.

"A number of government and private institutions now have a women's sports team in their organisation with professional trainers, and you can see them participating in all the different tournaments organised or supported by the Council."
