The Guyana Badminton Association recently staged its annual GUMDAC Open Doubles tournament at the National Gymnasium, Mandela Avenue, with rivalry in both the Men’s and Ladies categories.

Caribbean champion Priyanna Ramdhani, who was allowed the play in the Men’s division due to lack of competition in the Ladies event, teamed up with Avinash Odit in the Men’s Doubles to defeat last year champions Jonathan Mangra and Ronald Chang Yuen in a trilling three-setter.

Priyanna then formed an alliance with Priscilla Moore to win the Ladies Doubles by defeating Ayanna Watson and Christina Kumar.
