Top shuttlers Ashwini Ponnappa and Lakshya Sen are among the 20 players who have resumed training at Prakash Padukone Badminton Academy (PPBA), Bangalore, about two months later. Apart from these two, Ajay Jayaram, Mithun Manjunath, BM Rahul Bhardwaj, and Mesnam Meeraba are also training.
The Sports Authority of India (SAI) had set rules to resume training at the end of last month. PPBA head coach and director Vimal said, "Some of the top national players have been training for the last two weeks. We have 16 courts and about 20 players are training. We have prepared different times and sessions for them. Most of our 65 trainees are currently not in the city. He is eager to come here and train. '
