Another nice weekend with many Asker badminton players playing has come to and end. We are impressed by the result of Shreyas and Shravan which played against each other in U13A men singles and together (and vinning) the U13A men double. Also Yatin made a very good result with his 3. place in U15A men single. A lot of other players from Asker also played and we happy to se so many Asker players having fun and learning a lot by playing in various tournaments. We encourage all Asker badminton player to participate in local tournaments as this is fun and a good way to improve badminton skills.
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.

What will you continue working on?
