Police badminton doubles tournament set for July

The Ministry of Interior Sports Club announced details of its second Police Friendly Badminton Cup, which is scheduled to take place July 12-13 at the ministry’s logistical department located behind the Royal Palace.

MoI Sports Club president Chea Bunheng told the Post the competition was open to all players, not just policemen, although 90 per cent of entrants were police, as registration for them was free.

“The games are set into two men’s doubles categories – 45- to 55-year-olds and over-56s. Although the prizes for winners are not much, Deputy Prime Minister Sar Kheng has spent his own money to resurface the courts at a cost of nearly $3,000,” Bunheng added.
