Outrigger Charity Badminton Tournament 2016

BY LEAH MATTERS — Over 150 hoteliers from 15 resorts in the Phuket region came together to participate in the “Outrigger Charity Badminton Tournament” held Saturday 23rd July. Hotel hosts could participate in either the men’s, women’s and/or mixed doubles tournaments in a round-robin competition.

The tournament was a great opportunity for hotel hosts to represent their resort whilst promoting and raising money for our Community Social Responsibility (CSR) project. All proceeds raised on the day will 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 is quite the achievement that Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort finished the day as overall champion 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.
