Also Yatin made a very good result with his 3. place in U15A men single.

Kaushik and Manju played their first tournament

In Mosstreffen in the beginning of October there were two Asker-players that played their first tournament ever. Kaushik and Manju did a great job and even though they were a little bit nervous at first, they had a nice experience in the badminton hall. Please read a little intervju with them below.

Manju and Kaushik in their first badminton tournament


How was it to play your first tournament?

K: It was very good because I made it to the finals in my first tournament.

M: It was so good and at the same time I was feeling a bit nervous. The tournament was a new experience for me.

What did you learn?

K: I learned to move the player around on court.

M: I learned losing is also a part of the game. I can learn more when I lose, so losing also benefit me.

What is your best memory from the tournament?

K: When I received my trophy.

M: Of course winning was a good memory, but at the same time losing was also a good memory.

What will you continue working on?

K: My confidence on court.

M: Moving the opponent around on court, increasing the power of my smash and accepting failure.

Back to normal training in Askerhallen

The Covid restrictions for the use of Askerhallen is now lifted. We can now use Askerhallen as we did before the Covid outbreak. But we are still very many player in a restricted area so we need to organise the players in groups.

We have decided that everyone that wants to participate in a training session needs to apply in the SPOND app. More information is found here.
