Report by Rtr Sri Ganesh

It was 7.15a.m on a Sunday morning 8th October 2006, the wake up call for all the RAC KL representative by the team captain. Registration started at 8.00a.m, team briefing at 8.50a.m and the game begin at 9.00a.m.. Our strong and energetic team comprised of Rtr Sri Ganesh (Team Captain) , Rtr Amit Gupta, Guest Suresh (IEM) and Guest Kumar (Ganesh’s Cousin brother)…The tournament was broken into 4 groups of four team in each group whereby each team has to play with each other. The top two shall qualify for the quarter-finals. This tournament was only open for doubles (guys or gals or mixed) as there were no singles or team event. Ganesh and partner Kumar was in group C and Amit and Suresh was in group D.

Amit and Suresh was in the group of Death whereby all the favourites were in their group (as the eventual finalist was from that group). Eventhough, they have not touch the racquet for more than 2 years, they still manage to win one of the group game but was not enough to qualify for the quaterfinals. . Bravo to their sportmanship and commitment.

Well, myself and my partner had to play against DRR Chandra and his partner from RAC Bangsar and it was a tough game but we manage to win. We manage to qualify for the quarter finals. Our quaterfinal opponent was no other then the other team from RAC Bangsar, Pres Suresh and VP Suren who came back for the revenge since we beat their other team. They were one of the favourites as they play badminton together every weekend. Me and my partner which most of the time covering me fought tiressly but lost marginally 19-21 and 15-21.

The event went on smoothly and it was a good fellowship. DRRE Dinesh also came and partcipated eventhough it was the day after his installation. Organiser, PP Ravi and PDDR Brahma thanked the Rotaract Club of Kuala Lumpur for supporting RAC Damansara’s first project of the term.
