T&T’s Ananda Ramsingh was gifted a spot in the quarterfinals of the Women’s Under-19 Singles at the Caribbean Regional Badminton Championship hosted by the T&T Badminton Association after a default win against Barbadian Cheyanna Burnette-Griffith at the National Racquet Centre, Tacarigua on Thursday night.

However, fellow T&T players Waynetta Thomas, Sandhy Cassie and Ralitsa Wong were not so fortunate and were beaten in the round-of-16 matches.

In the Boys Under-19 Doubles, the local teams of Aleem Ali and Mikael Joachim, and Stefano Bedasie and Renaldo Sinanan are through to the quarterfinals as well.

This after Ali and Joachim defeated Barbadians Aaron Godding and Nicholas Sobers 21-12, 8-21, 21-8 while Bedasie and Sinanan overcame another Bajan team of Kodie King and Gavin Robinson, 19-21, 21-16, 21-17.

Missing out were T&T’s Leon Cassie and Josef Gonzalez, as well as Vance Juteram and Nathaniel Khillawan.

In the Mixed Doubles, Khillawan and Wong advanced to the last-eight after beating Barbadians, Nicholas Sobers and Robyn Sobers 21-10, 21-12 while Leon Cassie and his sister, Sandhya Cassie battled past fellow locals, Renaldo Sinanan and Nelida Bedasie 21-19, 17-21, 21-18 .The tournament continues today at the same venue from 5 pm.
