Badminton tournament a smash

Tue 11 Nov 2014 In: Our Communities View at NDHA

The organisers of the Trans-Tasman Badminton Tournament just held in Auckland say it was a fun event, and have details on how you can get involved in their regular game days: Wow, what a fun event! Last weekend 58 players took part in the second Trans Tasman event (last year was Melbourne, next year Sydney) with 36 locals, 12 from Melbourne and 10 from Sydney. A warm up bbq on Friday evening got everyone mixing, thanks LYC! Saturday was full on with four grades playing round robin games in the morning and after a great lunch we were back into the eliminations and finals. Grade A winners were Shahrilazam and Eric (Sydney), Grade B David and Alan (Sydney), and Grade C Morro and David (Auckland). Place getters received medals and there were plenty of our prime sponsors products, Simply Pure gin and vodka to go around. In recovery mode there were social drinks and partying at Eagle Bar and Family on Saturday night to ease the joints. Watch out for Simply Pure promotions at these venues and at Saloon Bar. Thanks for seamless organisation to Jeffrey and his team. You too can join in the fun of Auckland badminton by contacting Play is most Saturdays from 1-3pm at Badminton Hall in Gillies Ave, Newmarket. Richard Galloway - 11th November 2014
