In a statement, the Association pointed out that construction of two badminton courts in the Indoor stadiums of all the hill district headquarters was decided during an executive body meeting of All Hill District Badminton Association held on October 31, 2008 at Churachandpur during the 6th Inter Hill District Badminton Tournament.

Accordingly, in the last edition of the tournament held at Indoor Stadium, Ukhrul, the event concluded with shuttlers playing in the two newly constructed courts.

With the responsibility of hosting the upcoming tournament resting on the shoulder of ACDBA, the Association members met and discussed issue of repairing of the existing Badminton court as well as construction of a new one at Indoor Stadium Chandel with the DC Chandel, who is also the Chairman of DRDA several times. During these meetings, the DC Chandel gave his positive response and it was confirmed that some amount was proposed for sanction to get the much required repairing of the existing Badminton court. Consequently, necessary ground work for repairing the Badminton court which is in a deplorable condition was taken up.

But to the surprise of ACDBA, it has been conveyed that the work proposal has been cancelled. Now it is uncertain whether the tournament would be hosted or not.
