A roaring success is one way to describe the ISAC Badminton tournament that happened on Saturday 7th March. With both division 1 teams placing 1st amongst 5 schools, it is great to see all the hard work and effort put into the game by both the players and the coaches reap its benefits. The day brought all sorts of surprises; the division 1 girls won all matches (3 singles, 2 doubles) against all participating schools to win with a total of 20 points (1game won= 1 point) for the 6th successive year; and the boys against all schools with a total of 15 points.
The most memorable games were those played by Lixuan Law (1st singles) who battled against a Tenby player to win 21-19 and Anthony Sim with Ean Lau (1st doubles) who had a phenomal recovery to win 22-20 against ISKL.
We also had our fair share of mishaps, the funniest being Amanda Tan tripping over Raashi Basu but winning 21-14 against ISKL. The division 2 girls placed 2nd and the boys placed 4th.
On behalf of the team, I would like to thank our coaches – Alvin and Mei for dedicating hours on end to make us all better players and a more cohesive team.
