ACT Closed 2020

Well Supported ACT Closed Tournament

The ACT Closed was held at Amaroo High School Sports Hall on 21-22 November 2020.  It was changed from the previously postponed ACT Open (due to be played at the AIS in May) to meet COVD-19 safety issues.  It was very well supported with over 140 players across all grades representing 10 of the 14 ACTBA affiliated clubs and was held in a wonderful spirit of ‘competitive friendliness’. 

The junior participants in the D Grade were particularly respectful, friendly and honest in their games, ensuring that those players not as advanced were also able to have fun.  Congratulations to all the winners and RUs (there was a delay in obtaining the trophies which will be provided to clubs for distribution over the next week or so).  For all the results please see:

Best attended ACTBA Interclub Teams Challenge

In the ACT’s first tournament since the end of the ACT’s COVID-19 lockdown period and relaxation of restrictions on indoor sports activities, the InterClub Teams Challenge held on Saturday, 26 September was the best ever.  Notwithstanding the unusually cold day for this time of year (with snow on the Brindabella Mountain Range), 133 players from 11 clubs (out of 13 active ACTBA clubs in the ACT) formed 30 teams across four grades (Open, B, C & D) to play a round-robin event in a wonderful spirit of friendship and camaraderie.  It clearly showed that badminton in the ACT remains strong and that players were very keen to compete again in a social atmosphere against other Canberra clubs.   General photos Open grade Winners and runner’s up B grade Winners and runners up Photo pending C grade Winners and runners up D grade Winners and runners up
