Badminton on-court action resumes after lengthy break

0

The Guyana Badminton Association at the weekend resumed its on-court action with an A, B and C Division tournament at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall, Homestretch Avenue, Georgetown.

The two-day competition was the first for the Association since December 2019, and was played with strict adherence to the COVID-19 measures.

In an interview with News Room Sport on the sidelines of the tournament, President of the Guyana Badminton Association, Gokarn Ramdhani, said it was well received, with a significant number of players turning up for the Men’s and Ladies Singles event.

The long-serving Badminton head said it was pleasing to see the enthusiasm displayed by the players after such a lengthy layoff.

Ramdhani added that the pandemic has had its effect on the sport, the most telling being the lack of on-court action for the players.

In the interim, he highlighted, the Association has been taking steps to expand the sport through the introduction of the Shuttle Time and Air Badminton Projects in schools.
