Congratulations to our Under 13 Victorian State Teams on their performance at the WSBA Under 13 Interstate Series recently! The Victoria Rebels came through with the title after a draw in games with New South Wales Thunder forced a countback on points to determine the winner of the tie. The Victoria Demons did well to take Bronze medals for the day.
In the Regional Teams and Regional Boys Challenges, we had some outstanding Victorian-based teams compete. Congratulations to the teams from our members Infinity Badminton Association, Pro Badminton Academy and Badminton Academy of Victoria on placing Top 3 in the Regional Teams Challenge.
