    ACBA CALD Veterans Team, 8 Nov. 2014

Indu Sealey and Jane Liu of Canberra Rocks, joined forces at the last minute with Sydney's Frankie Huo, Tim Zheng and Lifan Li , coming second in the A Grade pool in the ACBA CALD Veterans Team Event in Hurstville on 8 November.
The A Grade pool was won by the unbeatable Bankstown team.

Albury Veterans Team Competition, 1-2 November 2014

The ACT Hot Shots in their second year competing at the Australian Veterans Team Championships in Albury last weekend, scored the 2nd most points in A Grade achieving a third Place podium and missing the Runner's Up place by just 6 points to CBA Most Wanted.
There were three prizes this year in the A Grade pool only, as one very strong team was received by the tournament organisers. The pool was won by none other than the favourites, the Geelong Cats, who had exceptionally strong players, including a Commonwealth Games player.

ACT Hot Shots surprised their competitors with the results they achieved, as they were the least strongest team in the A Grade Pool on paper.

The team consisted of all Canberra badminton enthusiasts, Indu Sealey, Jane Liu, Ana Sartbayeva, Farhad Islam, Tao Petchnoi, Kim Man Yaek, Leroy Dickson and their fourth lady, Diana Lim, joined them from Sydney.

Congratulations and well done all.
