Axiata Cup 2014
Serving for Success
Kumon is proud to be the official Education Partner of the Axiata Cup 2014. The event will take place from the 27th November to the 7th December in Jakarta, Indonesia and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Now in its third year, the tournament ensures top quality badminton action as world renowned players vie for top honours in this prestigious competition. It remains one of the most lucrative badminton team events with prize money of up to USD$1 million. The event is sponsored by the Axiata Group, one of Asia’s largest telecommunications companies.
The Axiata Cup includes eight teams from the ASEAN region and from Europe. The event is sanctioned by the Badminton Asian Confederation (BAC), the Badminton World Federation (BWF) and organised by Total Sports Asia (TSA).
Badminton is a sport where players require both physical and mental strength and agility. Strategy is a crucial aspect for each player as they calculate the intensity needed for each shot to win each point. This determination and mental agility can be imparted to our own students studying in Kumon. With students aspiring to achieve their own personal goals and dreams through hard work and determination, we are proud to be the official education partner of this tournament.
