1st Interschool All Mixed Doubles Badminton Tournament (IAMDBT) – Event highlights

SAMA recently concluded it’s first Inter-school All Mixed Doubles Badminton Tournament last 22nd May, 2016 at the Singapore Badminton Hall. Eight (8) out of the fourteen (14) badminton courts were occupied by SAMA for this event. A total of twenty-six (26) Philippine Universities and Colleges were represented by one hundred and twenty-four (124) seasoned badminton players from the various clubs under the Filipino Badminton Community in Singapore.

Our Sports and Recreations Committee Chairman, Mr. Alison and the Internal VP, Ms. Vhines, had close coordination with one of the badminton clubs, Pinoy Shuttlers Singapore (PSS), of which they are also members.

Pre-registrations started in April and lasted until May 9th. Some of the players only realized that they were from the same school when each of them started to look for their respective partners in each category.

Eventually, the committee has managed to invite sixty-two pairs of seasoned badminton players. There were still others who wanted to participate but didn’t have a partner (from the same school).

Twenty-six (26) Philippine Universities and Colleges
Sixty-two (62) pairs of contenders in different categories – lower, middle and upper
Twenty-four (24) trophies and cash prizes to be won

The event started with a program led by 2016-17 SAMA Internal Vice President, Ms. Vhines. She opened with an invocation for the blessing of the event and all participants.

After the prayers, we gave respect to the Philippine flag by singing our national anthem.

After that, 2016-17 SAMA President, Mr. Edwin, delivered the welcome remarks. During his speech, he identified three goals that this event would like to achieve. First, is to identify who among the badminton players within the huge, 800-strong Filipino Badminton Community, are Mapua alumni. Being the affiliate of NAMA (Philippines), we encourage those Mapuans who are working or living in Singapore, to join and register with SAMA. We offer different sports, recreation, trainings, seminars, volunteer works and an overall feeling of inclusiveness with different families and friends. Secondly, SAMA is building up it’s sports portfolio and plans to include badminton among it’s regular sports offering every year. With the inter-school concept, it can evolve to include other inter-school sports like bowling, badminton, darts and others. Thirdly, SAMA intends to collate the excess monies from this event together with other events for this year and donate to a Singapore charity of her choice. It’s a way of giving back to our host country, Singapore, and a way to help those in need.

May 22 Event!

Thanks to the overwhelming response of the various clubs in the Filipino Badminton Community (FilBadCom) in Singapore, we have 62 pairs playing for SAMA’s 1st Interschool All Mixed Doubles Badminton Tournament vying for trophies and prizes in the upper, mid and lower categories.

These 124 players hail from 26 different Colleges and Universities in the Philippines! Some of them who have been competing in the various FilBadCom tournaments for a long time didn’t even know that they are of the same alma mater.

This tournament has brought them together and, at the same time, it has given us an insight on the plethora of Philippine schools alumni who are working or living in Singapore.

Catch us on 22nd May 2016 from 8:00am to 2:00pm at the Singapore Badminton Hall.
