TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:The Super Series Djarum Indonesia Open, which will be held in Istora Senayan, Jakarta, 22-27 June, will not be attended by Chinese badminton players.

The Committee head of the Indonesia Open Handojo said that they were absent because they will participate in a domestic competition.

“Players from 30 countries will participate in the Indonesia Open. Badminton players from ranks 1-15 will come, except those from China. They are absent because they are following a tournament in their own country,” said Handojo.

The tournament participants will compete to obtain the total prize money of US$ 600.000 (Rp5.55 billion).

The price is higher than the previous prize which amounted to US$ 250.000.

There is a prize increase because the Indonesia Open will be categorized as the Premier Super Series tournament starting next year.

The Head of Indonesia Badminton Association (PBSI) Djoko Santoso said that there are two PBSI targets this year.

“The first target is to succeed in becoming a Premier Super Series next year. The second one is achievements,” he said.

PBSI hopes that Indonesia could become champion in men’s single, men’s double and mixed double.
