The President Cup

Dear readers

The President Cup was played yesterday at Armadale Badminton Courts. The Cup is usually the final tournament before the players leave Perth for the Nationals. Players are selected by the President to challenge the WA team.

I cannot see all the names of the volunteers  that formed the President's teams. Yes, there were 2 teams. One in the morning and one in the afternoon. Thanks to all the volunteers.

President Lily Buttrose is to be thanked for taking time away from her family to be involved in the President's Cup. Also Trevor for helping run the tournament.

Of course, the parents have to be thanked by their children for helping them throughout this experience.

I believe the WA state team fought valiantly but had to concede to both President's team. This will be a good experience for the state team. They are playing under the usual conditions in the nationals. 2 matches a day usually. That is why it will take a toll on their bodies. Good luck to them.

The players have to learn that every point counts.

Here are the photos.

The team get their uniforms sponsored by Maxx

Dear readers

Some great pictures of the uniforms sponsored by Maxx. I believe the sponsors was found by Sok Teoh who has always been supportive of the state teams as his sons Kai Chen, Kai Tjie and now daughter Berniece have been key players.

The players will learn to treasure the uniforms as it will remind them that they represented WA.

Good luck to them.

Smile please Berniece.

Sports Injury and Sports Biomechanics talk

Dear readers

It has been a while since I updated the blog. However I know Teck Hin, the manager and Ryan the coach have been busy training the team. Many of the parents this year are also very supportive.

Ryan organised a talk for the players recently. Unfortunately I do not know the names of the persons who spoke to the team about managing sports injury. These young bodies will be pushed to their limits during the tournament and every bit of knowledge that they can use to protect themselves will be important. 

Here are some of the photos from the talk.
