Condemning the manner in which the indoor badminton court was being held, a Congress councilor staged a dharna here on Saturday.
According to Thoothukudi Corporation ward 34 councilor S. In the indoor stadium coming from the second street of Ashok Nagar in his ward, Chandrabose, the wooden flooring was being installed in an “unscientific manner” as the board was spread on the floor itself. As this can cause injury to players, it should be stopped and properly processed.
“Instead of laying a board on the floor, a wooden floor base for a badminton court should be created over a shallow pit. Only after forming the base in this shallow pit should the synthetic floor be created with steel bars and laid with carpet. If the badminton court is set up in this ruthless manner, it will cause serious sporting injuries to the players and end their careers,” said Mr. Chandrabose.
He said that the contractor should be given instructions for the proper construction of the badminton court. Otherwise, the contract awarded to him should be canceled and awarded to a competent person.
