2016

Omnium de Gatineau: Quebec Junior Circuit Tournament.  Nov 18-20, 2016. 
 
The first big tournament for the RA Badminton Club's high performance program took place at the Cejep de Gatineau, from Friday Nov 18 to Sunday Nov 20th.  Almost all of our juniors (totals 40 across 3 groups: HP 1, 2 and 3) participated, making for a very busy 3 days for Javier and Andrew, not to mention for the kids themselves!  It was a successful weekend.  We were thrilled with the performances of the players, most of whom played to their potential.  
 
By Sunday, we had 5 athletes/pairs competing in finals.  The final results were:
 
      U13 BS:  Alain Zheng - Gold
U13 BS:  Methira Herath
               U13 BD: Methira and Alain - Gold
     U15 BS:  Tony Yang - Silver
    U17 GS:  Sherry Wu - Gold
                        U17 GD:  Jenny Lei / Sherry Wu - Silver
 
Congratulations to these athletes, and the others who had fine performances!
 
The next big tournament for this group will be a bigger challenge, but also a great experience,
the Quebec Junior Elite Series event, also held in Gatineau, from Jan. 13-15th. Many of the best players in Canada will participate, so our juniors will have to continue to train hard if they want to do well!  But we think they are up to the challenge!

RA Junior Podium Performances at the “Omnium de Gatineau” Junior Tournament 2015

 

A massive contingent of juniors (35) from the RA Centre attended a Quebec provincial junior tournament in Gatineau this past weekend (Nov 13-15, 2015). Thirty-six out of forty of the juniors in our HP program were in attendance, competing across four age divisions: U13, U15, U17 and U19. For the most part, our athletes had stellar performances. By Sunday, we had representation in 8 finals! In the end, we only came away with 2 wins, but it was a success nonetheless.

 

The winners and finalists were:

 

U19 Boys’ Doubles Winners: Minh Pham (RA) and Nicholas Nguyen (QC)

U13 Boys’ Doubles Winners: Alain Zheng (RA) and Evan Wickramasinghe (RA)

U19 Boys’ Singles Finalist: Minh Pham

U19 Girls’ Doubles Finalists: Jessica Cai (RA) and Jasmine Sauriol (QC)

U17 Girls’ Singles Finalist: Kalie Rhéaume

U15 Girls’ Doubles Finalists: Karen Li (RA) and Joanne Sze (Soong)

U15 Mixed Doubles Finalists: Karen Li and Andy Bai

U15 Boys’ Singles Finalist: Andy Bai

 

The next big event for our high performance group will be a Canadian elite series junior tournament, again in Gatineau, from January 23rd to 25th, 2016. We are pumped about this (as are the kids), and we will work hard to do well there!

 

Special mention to coaches in attendance: Andrew Dabeka, Javier Montes, Joseph Rogers and Andrew D’Souza.
