LEPHALALE — The 2017 Badminton Limpopo Regional Closed Tournament was hosted by the Capricorn Badminton Club in Polokwane on 7 and 8 April. For many players, this was considered a very important tournament as selectors were keeping an eye out for players to be selected for the nationals later this year.
Players from all over Limpopo came to partake in the tournament, and thus it had one of the largest player turnouts to date. Matches were played until after midnight on both days.
Mogol Badminton Club’s players were faced with extremely tough opposition but proved their worth by achieving great results.
Mogol Players that received rewards: Frank Scheun, men’s singles champion, second place men’s doubles (with Adrian Buhrmann) and second place mixed doubles (with Ilzé Buhrmann); Petro Kruger and Annelia van Zyl, women’s doubles champions; Bennie Esterhuizen, mixed plate champion; Ilzé Buhrmann, women’s doubles plate champion (with Jonina Grobler) and second place in women’s singles plate.
