Cory Fanus and Bradley Pilgrim head a list of doubles players for Barbados who have advanced through to the semifinal of the 2019 Senior Carebaco International Championship scheduled for tonight at the Wildey Gymnasium.
Fanus and Pilgrim quickly disposed of Leon Cassie and Vance Juteram of Trinidad and Tobago in straight sets 21-13 and 21-10 yesterday evening in the quarterfinals of the men’s doubles.
That performance by Fanus and Pilgrim was much welcomed since no Barbadian badminton player qualified for the final of the individual competition.
Monyata Riviera and local number one seed Tamisha Williams hammered Simone George and Meera Mahabir of Trinidad and Tobago 21-10 and 21-5, as those two dominated throughout.
Also reaching the semifinals for Barbados are Neah Callender and Krystal Clarke having won 21-12 and 21-9 against Tishelle George and Zharia Hinds of Trinidad and Tobago.
Meanwhile, Barbadian Sabrina Scott has teamed up with Priyanna Ramdhani of Guyana, and those two also reached the semifinals after they defeated Alana Bailey and Katherine Wynter of Jamaica 21-16 and 22-20.
