BWF World Rankings Notice

May 08, 2009, 12:37 p.m. (ET)

This is a letter from Stuart Borrie regarding BWF World Rankings.


 Dear Member Associations

 The BWF wishes to inform you that the BWF World Rankings for this week will not be available till midnight Friday 8 May KL time. The World Rankings will be uploaded onto the new look BWF website tomorrow.

 For a few weeks, the BWF will publish these in excel format. The back up data for each of the rankings will not be available for the next few weeks - until the end of May.

 As you may be aware, the BWF had technical problems with the old website on Monday evening and it left us without the access to the online system for world rankings - and the BWF Events Staff have had to do this manually. This is very time consuming and it involves some 2000 players from around the world.

 The back end information that would normally be available, should be up and running by the end of May.

 Our apologies for any inconvenience caused. This is unfortunate, however we are working hard to address this significant issue.

 If you have any questions, please contact Venu:

Kind regards

Stuart Borrie
Secretary General
Badminton World Federation
