Congratulations to Extreme Team

Feb 24th 2013 - Thank you everyone for another successful year of the Mark Grantham Team Challenge.  A special thanks to Dominique Guertin for helping the ODBA find and secure the 2 venues - otherwise, this year's tournament would not have been possible.  And, a very special thanks to the head tournament organizer Jean Wong for the countless hours she spends each day to prepare this tournament.  This year there were so many great badminton teams, and a lot of really close games.  Vivian Tam's team, Extreme Team, is this year's champions and are the cash prize winners of $480.  And, the runner ups were Kenny Ng's Toronto team, from Lee's Badminton, Never Give Up!, who slipped into the A Finals over Rachel Ng's team, The Velvet Hammer, by 1 game (they tied in matches).  I look forward to seeing everyone again next year at the 2014 Mark Grantham Team Challenge.
