Replacing the current three-game format with a best of five scoring system will once again be put to vote by the Badminton World Federation (NEF) during its AGM on Saturday.
The game’s governing body, under president Poul Erik Hoyer Larsen, had floated the idea in 2014 for the first time but it didn’t receive the support.
The 11×5 system, which was criticised by players and coaches alike, couldn’t gather enough votes in last year’s AGM.
This time, a joint proposal to “amend the Laws of Badminton relating to the Scoring System” came from Badminton Indonesia and Badminton Maldives, and was seconded by Badminton Asia, and associations from Korea and Chinese Taipei.
“One of the key topics that will be voted on by the Membership is the proposal … to amend the Laws of Badminton relating to the Scoring System,” BWF said on Tuesday.
