Manitoba Badminton Association – Winnipeg, Jan 17 – Very young and inexperienced Manitoba Team beats Saskatchewan in the Round Robin, but loses in critical bronze medal match in the 2016 Western Canadian Team Championships at the Winnipeg Winter Club on Jan 15-17.

Manitoba split it’s best players into 2 teams to create development opportunities for 12 local players to compete in the Western Canadian Team Championships.  This meant that the 2 Manitoba teams would surely have to put in extra work to compete with the other provinces who were bringing in their best players all on one team.

Manitoba, typically ranked 3rd going into the championships, was split into Team A ranked 3rd in the tournament, and Team B, ranked 5th behind Saskatchewan.  Team B would lose all their Team Ties, however Team A would go 2 and 2 in the round robin setting up a Bronze Medal Matchup against Saskatchewan whom they beat 8-6 in their first tie of the tournament.

This time however, whether due to the relative inexperience of the team or the pressure of playing in front of a home crowd, Manitoba would fall to a similar but reversed score, 8-6 to Saskatchewan.

This tournament is on the 2-week eve of the National Badminton Championships which will be held at the Winter Club from February 3-6.  Canada’s top players and national team players will be competing for national title holder rights as well as valuable national team points.
