Grizzlies Win Georgian Open Badminton Tournament
October 29, 2012

Barrie, ON – The Grizzlies Badminton team played as hosts at the Georgian Open this past weekend but they were not kind to their guests, taking advantage of the home court advantage and winning the tournament on Saturday.

Each tie consisted of two men’s & women’s singles matches along with a men’s, women’s and a mixed double match to determine the winner of each individual tie.

The Grizzlies had a big Friday night winning both their matches by a combined 13-1 score. First up was a 7-0 win over Conestoga before finishing day one of the tournament with a 6-1 win over Cambrian.

Georgian carried that momentum right into day two defeating Centennial 7-0 to wrap-up the round robin as the top seed.

The team then put together yet another impressive 6-1 victory over Conestoga to earn a spot in the finals where they would meet the Centennial Colts.

The finals saw long, hard fought battles highlighted by the mixed doubles finals but the Grizzlies were able to come out on top with a 5-2 score to win the tournament.

Here are the final results from the tournament.
