Day one of the two-day tournament saw representatives from the various Badminton clubs and schools battle it all out in their respective categories for qualification into the next round of the games.
The various categories were under 13, Under-17, 30-39 and 40-49 where the players were grouped according to their ages.
The boys under 13 saw the likes of Adu Enoch Acheaw, Sapei Gabriel Nunoo, Amassah Samuel, Baah-Mensah Kofi Ohene and some others who also battled each other for a spot in the qualification process.
In the boys under 17 and 19 categories, Adu Enoch Junior and Obengshang Francis managed to sail through to the quarterfinals with the likes of Michael Yeboah, Andrew Owiredu, and Asare Bediako Raphael and Kobby Douglas who were also on top of their games.
One of the most challenging games to watch was in the men’s 40-49 category. It was indeed a cracker between Michael Nii Boye Quartey and Aryeh Daniel as the two showed some level of class in their game, but unfortunately for Ayeh Daniel, Michael Nii Boye Quartey carried the day with a perfect score.
The doubles men’s 40-49 category was indeed a clash of the titans as experienced Michael Nii Boye Quartey paired Richard Mensah to hand Yeboah Evans and Gyamfi Richard Kofi a convincing loss yesterday.
Elsewhere in the Girls under 13, 17 and 19 categories, Adu Moslena Ama Korama sailed through to the quarterfinals with ease. It was a family affair between Sarpei Patience Naa Fio and Sarpei Margaret Amiokor who also battled it out for qualification to the quarterfinals as Taylor Sheila also took Kisseih Samuella.
The quarterfinals would take place on Sunday with the players eager to win the 2022 Open All-Championship game.
