Transnational teams 2015 : Great news for Indian teams!March 12, 2015
Please see below for an announcement from the BFI President which greatly benefits Indian teams that would like to participate in the Transnational Teams event in Chennai this September!
As more Indian players are keen to participate in the Transnational team event (open) if the entry fee is reduced, I have requested that the WBF committee reduce the entry fee to Rs.60,000 instead of $1,500 per team.
I have promised the WBF that there will be at least 50 Indian teams if the entry fee is reduced. I am very happy to inform you that the WBF team headed by the president, Gianarrigo Rona has consented to our proposal with an intention to allow Indian participants to enjoy international competition. My heartfelt gratitude is extended to our president and his team. To avail this facility the team should comprise of only Indian players(Indian passport holders).
The entry along with the entry fees (Rs.60,000) should be registered with Sri Debasish Ray, Joint Secretary, BFI, before June 30th 2015 to avail the special rate. His contact information is
