The Guyana Badminton Association’s National Junior Tournament culminated at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall after three days of intense competition among the players.

All players brought their A-Game as there was the added bonus of being chosen to represent Guyana at the upcoming Inter-Guiana Games to be held from November 25-27 in Guyana.

Young Mishka Beharry emerged as the most outstanding player, claiming four titles (three Singles and a Doubles).

Beharry won gold in the Girls U-15, U-17 and U-19 Singles, and teamed up with Alyssa Dick to cop the Girls U-19 Doubles.

The GBA has expressed thanks to the National Sports Commission and the Director of Sport Steve Ninvalle for making the tournament possible.

“On Friday afternoon, the majority of the Badminton fraternity met with the Honourable Minister Charles Ramson and the Director of Sport (just before the start of the Junior Tournament) where the Honourable Minister highlighted the Government’s plans to build a home for Badminton at the National Racquet Centre on Woolford Avenue,” the Association said in a release.

“The GBA is extremely and beyond grateful for this very timely and long-awaited initiative and thanks the government of Guyana.  This facility will be shared with Table-Tennis.”
