National Iranian men’s and women’s badminton teams have decided not to attend the İBB Turkey International Series 2016 due to the high number of injured players as well as the unfavorable situation of Iranian athletes at the camp.

“Given the national teams’ situation in the Turkish camp and injury of some of our players, the decision was made not to participate in Turkey international games,” President of the Islamic Republic of Iran Badminton Federation, Bahador Zakizadeh, said on Sunday.

The Iranian federation had named Soraya Aghaei, Sara Delavari, Yasra Beigi, Pegah Kamrani, Safoura Zamanlou, Soroush Eskandari, Farzin Khanjani, Mehran Shahbazi, Masoud Pirouzi and Masoud Jabbari as members of the Iranian delegation to the sports event.
