Cook Islands Badminton have received over 30 registrations for the ‘Clash of the Generators’ fun doubles tournament at the Princess Anne Hall tomorrow.
“We expect the number to grow before registrations close (today) at 4pm and we actually had to book for a bigger venue because of the large number of entries which is awesome,” said president Thomas Ngauru.
Players are invited to pair up with their mum or dad, uncle or aunty, grandma or grandpa for some fun badminton matches and win some great prizes.
Ngauru said, “the initiative behind the competition was to encourage more parents and guardians to be more involved and provide an opportunity for them to bond and have a fun day out with the family.”
“And with Covid-19 it’s our goal to create more events for the community to enjoy and look forward to.”
Ngauru said their badminton classes this school term have been the busiest with over 80 juniors participating and many of those players will be taking to the court this Friday.
“The children are really looking forward to competing especially having mum or dad on the court with them.”
For people who are interested, the fees are $10 per team and if you would like to register contact Thomas Ngauru on 57163.
The Princess Anne courts will be open at 10am with the first matches beginning at 11am. There will also be food stalls, so come along and enjoy a day of fun with badminton.
Thomas Ngauru also said there are plans to host a badminton competition every other month.
