India Pretty Baby ASHWINI PONNAPPA becomes a VICTOR-sponsored player
After signing Indonesia’s AHMAD/NATSIR, last week VICTOR signed a sponsorship deal with one of India’s top doubles players ASHWINI PONNAPPA; it is expected that she will play at the India Open later this week in VICTOR colors.

She is the first Indian player to be sponsored by VICTOR and, by sponsoring her, VICTOR once again has shown its determination to expand its presence in international badminton.
ASHWINI PONNAPPA said that she is really happy to be sponsored by VICTOR. In recent years VICTOR has improved markedly in terms of brand image and product quality so she has no worries at all about being closely associated with the brand, she said. She hopes that she will play better wearing VICTOR rackets and wearing VICTOR clothes to help raise the profile of badminton in India. PONNAPPA said that in India badminton is a new sport that is attracting more and more players and she hopes that in future, with the help of VICTOR, she will achieve better results and will encourage more young people in India to take up the sport.
ASHWINI PONNAPPA is attractive and has achieved some good results. Playing in the women’s doubles at the 2012 London Olympics her and her partner beat Chinese Taipei’s “golden women’s doubles pair” Cheng Wen Hsin/Chien Yu Chin in the qualifying round. Also, she is still only 23 so still has a lot of potential. This is a new star that aficionados of the game will not fail to notice.
