The competition is launched with a great opening ceremony

Dear readers, friends and parents

The Val Nesbitt Trophy event was launched today with a great opening ceremony.

All the teams have arrived and they all look impressive in their uniforms. Most of the players have grown taller since I last saw them in Melbourne.

Today was a great photo op day. Sometimes a picture tells a thousand words so I do not have to write too much today. Need an early night as we have to be at Kingsway early tomorrow.

There are 9 State teams and 8 regional teams.

WA will be playing Victoria 2 tomorrow at 9 am.

All the teams sat for their team photographs before proceeding to the main hall for the opening ceremony.

Judith Cousins , our BAWA president gave a good welcoming speech. We were even treated to 2 displays of cheerleading by 2 girl teams of cheerleaders. Maybe our girl parents wished their girls were more into cheerleading instead of badminton. It would certainly be cheaper.

The team finally in their uniforms. The manager is missing though.
