Repping Badminton at the Trans-Tasman Tournament


Congratulations to our own Perth Western Rockets for their amazing performance in the 6th Annual Trans-Tasman Tournament hosted in Melbourne by the Melbourne Smashers over October 25 – 27. The Trans-Tasman Tournament is the largest LGBTIQ badminton competition in the Southern Hemisphere with 130 players competing from 6 LGBTIQ badminton clubs across Australia and New Zealand.

The Perth based Western Rockets Team sent 10 enthusiastic players and are proud to say that each player showed inspired game play and fantastic sportsmanship. A special congratulation to Yasantha Eleperuma and Gabriel Piccinin for achieving a quarter final spot in their division.

The Western Rockets are inspired to achieve better results in the next Trans-Tasman Tournament, to be held in Auckland 2020.
