Team Captain emerged champion of the inaugural Inter Syahkampong Badminton Tournament 2021, organised by Syahkampong, after winning four games at the Fu Zhou Shiyyi Association Building in Jalan Pasir Berakas recently.

Team 4H finished runners-up after winning three games while Team Wakanda settled for third place with two victories to their name.

Three teams competed in the tournament, played in a round robin format with matches contested in singles and doubles. Meanwhile, Abdul Faiz bin Zaini was named the best player of the tournament after winning three games including two doubles matches and a singles match.

The tournament helped Syahkampong players to stay active and fit in a competitive environment in the absence of futsal and football tournaments in the country.

Syahkampong, who have been active in futsal since 2000, plans to organise other sports tournaments in the future namely table tennis and athletics.

Brunei Darussalam National Badminton Association (BDNBA) Deputy President Zaini bin Haji Puasa was the guest-of-honour.
