Hotel Badminton Teams Raise Funds for Phuket School

Over 150 hoteliers from 20 resorts in the Phuket area came together to participate in the Outrigger Charity Badminton Tournament, held August 4 at the PK Arena Badminton Club in Thalang, central Phuket. 

Funds raised will go towards the Baan Kok Wat Mai School where Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort has undertaken several long-term projects, such as library renovation, school toilet enhancements, and upgrading the playground, canteen and classrooms.

Each hotel team contributed THB3,500 to compete in men’s doubles, women’s doubles and mixed doubles matches. Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort finished the day as overall champion after nearly 10 hours of competition.

“I’d like to thank all the hotel teams who participated,” said Leah Matters, Resort Manager at the Outrigger. “The players showed great spirit and sportsmanship to raise funds for a worthy cause – and to promote physical health benefits through sport.” 

Badminton is a very popular sport in Thailand. It is included in the school sports curriculum. The current number-one female player in the world is a Thai national, Ratchanok Intanon.

Results: Men’s double, Women’s Double and Mixed Double, JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa is the champion beat Andara Resort & Villa. Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort finished the tournament in the third place.
