Hey Badminton Community!
We’ve had a couple exciting weeks with a number of our players attending the 2022 U11, U13, U15, U17, U19, U23 and Senior National Badminton Championships in Edmonton Alberta from July 2-10.
NS athletes that attended were as followed: Sherlyn Mei, Audrey Wang, Taniya Shah, Cinra Mei, Ritu Shah, Aidan Babcock-Parks, and Thomas Ashton
Coaches: Patrick Thompson, Gary MacDougall and Ruiwen (Katherine) Zhu.
Referee: Mark Briscombe.
We would like to highlight a few notable results from our players.
Sherlyn Mei and partner Angela Chen (QB) won gold U11 GD.
Zhiqing Wang (NS) and partner Max Wang (BC) placed 3rd in U13 XD.
Ritu Shah and partner Eunice Hermanato (AB) placed third in U23 GD.
Thomas Ashton reached the quarterfinals of the U23 MS after beating the tournaments number 1 seed in the round of 16.
We also want to congratulate Nova Scotian Miklos Kanyasi now playing at the Glencoe Club in Calgary on making quarterfinals in the open mens singles and in mens doubles.
Full results are available on the Badminton Canada tournament software website.
In addition to some strong results from our NS athletes, Mark Briscombe was the tournament referee for the u17, u19, u23 championships and is now accredited as a Badminton Canada Tournament Referee.
