To ACT Technical Officials / ACTBA committee,
Western Suburbs BA once again hosted the U13 National carnival, comprising of the Interstate Series, the Regional Boys Challenge and the Regional Teams Challenge. The carnival was held over 3 days (17-19 Jan) at the Altona Badminton Centre, VIC.
ACT entered a team to compete in the Regional Teams Challenge with 4 local players (Charith, Gordon, Fahim and Victoria), supplemented by 2 girls from the Infinity BC (VIC). Team officials were Xing Huong (Coach), Gerald Lin (Manager) and Valouny Souksavat (Umpire).
There were 9 teams entered in the Regional Teams Challenge with ACT placing 6th overall.
Although ACT players were beginners with no prior exposure to a team competition format, they did learn the rigour of team competition and gained valuable experience.
