Badminton, table tennis venues for Commonwealth Games gets nod

After months of delay, venues for badminton and table tennis for the Commonwealth Games have finally got the green signal from Delhi Urban Arts Commission (DUAC).

The fate of the badminton and squash courts and table tennis arena at Siri Fort Sports Complex and Yamuna Sports Complex respectively was lying in limbo for last several months in the absence of requisite nod after the DDA failed to comply with norms.

"The revised proposal (regarding stadium for badminton and squash competition at Sri Fort) was found acceptable with the observation that no trees should be cut," a member of the commission said.

For YSC venue, the DUAC has asked the project proponent to define the pedestrian movement for spectators as well ensuring a pedestrian plaza at the spectator entry.

The commission has given approval to the construction of venue with the condition of submitting a properly worked out
landscape plan of the project.

The member said the delay was on the part of the DDA and its job was just to ensure that rules were followed so that venues of international-standards could be constructed for the Games, slated to be held from October 3-14.
