World no.133 Mahoor Shahzad demands to re-open badminton courts

Badminton champion Mahoor Shahzad demands from the government of Pakistan to re-open the Badminton venues in the country with the coronavirus SOPs.

Badminton champion Mahoor Shahzad who is getting training under the umbrella of Asian Olympic Project (AOP) is the first-ever female badminton player of Pakistan to reach 150 in the world ranking.

Pakistan’s bigwig Mahoor Shahzad has not only revived interest in badminton with her success but also serves as a role model for little girls who wish to play sports. At the young age of 23, Shahzad has been the National Badminton Champion of Pakistan for the last four years and currently ranks 133rd in the world.

WAPDA's player Mahoor demands from the government of Pakistan to reopen the Badminton venues in the country with the SOPs which are still closed due to COVID-19 pandemic. 

Badminton star Mahoor Shahzad said:

"Being world no 133 with an aim to qualify for Olympics 2021, it feels immensely bad that I haven’t touched the badminton racket for 4 months. If the current situation prevails any longer and the sports facilities are not opened on an immediate basis then surely, it will hinder the progress of players and hamper their future plans."

Her most notable achievement is the title of Pakistan International Series 2019. The Annapurna Corporate International Badminton Tournament 2018 was also an important milestone for Mahoor.
