2013 Update: We are looking for an organizer to run the 2013 National Capital Team Tournament, otherwise it will not be held.

The 2012 National Capital Team Tournament

Congratulations to Vivian and her team, WYYYYYBW, in winning the 2012 National Capital Team Tournament.  The A-Finals were exciting to the end.  The A Finals began with Kenny Yuen's team, Saad Without Brigette, winning the opening match in 2 games.  But, team WYYYYYBW, ultimately reaching the needed 5 of 8 matches for the tournament win.  The trophy and cash prizes were awarded to Emilie Fleury-Larocque, Gary Wan, Joanne Che, Kartikay Tyagi, Liam Woodside, Simon Yip, Qufei Chen, and Vivian Tam.

The winners of the raffle draw were Raymond Zhang (Victor Racket) and Marie-Elaine (Victor Bag).

The winner of the 50/50 draw was Eric Teh (50% of $116).

Thank you to everyone for participating, we managed to raise $1000 for the Kidney Foundation of Canada!

Lastly, there are still dry-fit t-shirts, grips, mini bird, mini badminton bag/pencil case, and socks for sale.  If you are interested in purchasing any of the t-shirts or leftover Victor merchandise, please email us at nc@odba.ca for more info. For pictures please see our Merchandise Page.

We welcome all suggestions/constructive criticisms on our Feedback Page and we look forward to seeing everyone again at the next tournament!  Thanks everyone!!
