The event is being organised to commemorate Foo’s contribution to the sport as well as promote badminton as a means of healthy living for senior citizens.

Foo was one of the best players in the world in the 80s and 90s and was part of the Malaysian badminton squad that won the Thomas Cup in 1992.

He will also be in action as a member of Shah Alam Club Team Alppha in the tournament.

The competition, held in conjunction with the Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) and Taipei TCM Medical Centre, will include seniors from badminton clubs around the country. 

Other ex-national badminton greats such as Law Pei Pei, Lim Peck Siah, Ryan Tan and Yap Yee Hup will also make their appearance to spar in the tournament.

The two-day competition, starting today, will end with a prize-giving ceremony by Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim at 6pm on June 24.
