Success for Soong players at Ontario Provincial Junior B Championships in Toronto: May 13-15, 2016
Thirty six (36) Soong Badminton Academy players, along with six (6) SBA team coaches travelled together via bus, to Toronto to compete in the Ontario Provincial Junior B championships. With 287 players representing 29 clubs from across Ontario, the SBA team was clearly the largest group…and the team that travelled the furthest. Despite the early morning departure, and the long journey, the SBA players produced solid performances in all age groups and all events.
Congratulations to all our SBA team members for your strong performances.
