Central PA Badminton 2nd Annual Tournament Posts Another Success

Host of this year’s Central PA Badminton Tournament, the Lock Haven Badminton Club attracted 52 participants, literally one-upping last year’s tally of 51. Absent from this year’s expected roster were Cornell University and University of Virginia, which kept the total number of participants stable. Making up some lost ground were additional players from Delaware and SUNY Oneonta, who made their first appearance at the tournament this year.

It was at age 11 when Chong’s father first introduced the street game to him in his hometown in Malaysia, where badminton is the national sport.  Much like city-raised kids playing hockey in the narrow streets of Boston, Chong’s start was not much different.
