We have recently revamped our High-performance Programme with increasing global results and participation. This has enabled us to prioritize selected players capable of achieving national glory, experience, and challenge world level opposition as part of their development in line with our Performance Programmes aiming to win African, Commonwealth, World, Paralympic and Olympic podium glory.
The 2022 National Championship is the most important selection event organized this year. We are convinced that athletes from the various Badminton Clubs and shared interest groups in Ghana will perform on a top level and make an unforgettable show which will contribute to the growing popularization of the sport in our country.
There will be a direct qualification and elimination draw process, so everyone can get enough to play–for this year’s event because of the lack of tournament badminton that has been played so far in 2020 and 2021 because of COVID. Instead, acceptances will be made using the Ghana National Rankings from March 2019, followed by a seeded position determined by the Rankings as they stand by Draw date of July 5, 2022.
During this 2022 All Ghana Open National Championships, there would be a great number of talents which will be needed on the National Junior Team towards our plan, which is also allowing for further networking, competition, opportunity to be selected into the national squad and gain educational scholarships.
Corporate Masters players, both local and international residents’ players from across the nook and cranny, will attend the 2022 All Ghana Open National Championships with companies confirming entries, athletes said it is not important to win the games, what is important is that the Championship will make staff play badminton together, promote staff friendship, build business verticals, and to strengthen company cohesion and support a communication & interactive platform, whilst learning from each other and improving their badminton skills.
