Recently two of our senior club members, Rebecca Spiteri and Diego Scalvini took part in a badminton tournament held in Sicily over the weekend 23rd-24th April. This tournament, organized by BC Catania, was held in Misterbianco – a village that is around 15 minutes away from Catania airport by car.
Our players registered for two disciplines – women’s/men’s singles and mixed doubles. We are pleased to report that both Rebecca and Diego reached the semi-finals in their respective singles categories, while in the mixed doubles Rebecca and Diego walked away with the winner’s trophy, a very proud achievement for our club and in particular for both Rebecca and Diego.
These exceptional achievements are a result of the training and dedication that our players put in on a weekly basis and is testament to the fact that hard work pays off.
The following are their results:
