The Jax Foundation would like to congratulate all of the winners, youth players, coaches and any participants of this tournament. We would also like to extend a special thank you to all of the organizers, it was because of their contribution that this fantastic event was able to take place.

We decided to create this event because we believe that badminton was an easy sport to encourage young players to play, that not only improved the fitness of the youth, but also mental acuity. The Jax Foundation strongly believes in the power of sports and athletics as a way to boost the confidence of youth as well as promoting opportunities for them as a path towards success and achievement.


The Jax Foundation hopes to sponsor and organize many more athletic and sporting events in the future to be able to improve the opportunities of the youth wherever needed.
