MARS builds indoor badminton court in Maalhos
A non-governmental organization (NGO) in Baa atoll Maalhos, MARS, has started development of an indoor badminton court in the island.
Abdul Matheen, the steering secretary, said that expenditure is borne by the NGO, and assisted by the island’s council.
MARS expects that the cost of the court, being constructed on a land plot next-door to the NGO’s premises, will amount to more than MVR 300,000 (USD 19,455).
Matheen said that badminton has been gaining popularity among the youth of Maalhos, and that therefore, youngsters were in need of a court.
Alongside the construction of the 55 x 45 ft court, MARS will also set up its administrative building, resulting in the NGO being able to strengthen its functioning.
MARS expects the badminton court to come into use in early 2017.
