On the 5 and 6 August, we held our 55th Badminton Bonanza at The Sir Craig Reedie Centre, Glasgow.
The level of competition was impressive across all disciplines so congratulations to all players and finalists.
There are two different levels within the tournament meaning a wide range of abilities can participate. One is ‘competitive’ which are Grade B ranking events, and the other is ‘social’ which are Grade C ranking events.
The format of the tournament runs in groups initially, followed by knockout stages to to maximise the number of matches for everyone.
A special shoutout to Howard Cheuk who bravely dived for a shuttle in the third set of the MD final and suffered a bad injury. Luckily Ken Teh who is a doctor was on hand to help out, so we would like to say a huge thanks to Ken.
Opponent Ganesh gave Howard his gold medal and took his silver – a true example of sportspersonship.
Last but certainly not least, Rebecca Reid celebrated her 30th birthday! Happy Birthday Rebecca!
