The tournament was a great opportunity for hotel hosts to represent their resort whilst promoting and raising money for their Community Social Responsibility (CSR) project. All proceeds raised on the day are to be donated to Baan Kok Wat Mai School where the Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort team has undertaken several long-term projects including renovation of the library, school toilets, playground, canteen and classrooms.
Badminton is a very popular sport in Thailand and is included in the school sports curriculum with the current number-one female player in the world a Thai national, Ratchanok Intanon.
It was quite an achievement that Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort finished the day as overall
champions considering the level of skill amongst the 150 players.
Thank you to the Outrigger committee who dedicated their own time to arrange and run a well-organised, charitable and fun tournament.
