Five Falcons attended the last GBDBA Junior Tournament before the Championships to be held in Barrie on April 9/10. This tournament was the only tournament to focus on Mixed Doubles although U11s could play as a Doubles or Mixed team as GBDBA doesn’t differentiate between the genders at this age level.
Carter Pallister and William Nunnenmacher played their initial badminton tournament at any level and came away with the Silver medal at the A level upsetting their team mates Cameron Bird and Nolan Harbridge 21-15, 21-19 in their initial match. Cameron and Nolan who finished with the Gold medal at the B level managed to regroup, losing a tough 3 game match and then winning their final match in 3 games.
At the U17 category Dhir Patel, a U15 player, teamed up with Josee Philips of Midland and triumphed with the A Gold winning all of their games in all four matches although the final game was a 23-21 nail-biter against a team from Favourite B.C. in Newmarket.
