IT was sweet revenge for FMF when they downed Unitex FASANOC All Stars10-3 in the final of the Fiji Badminton Business House competition on Tuesday.

Last week, FASANOC had beaten FMF in the preliminaries but the tables were turned in the main final at the Yat Sen hall.

The competition lasted four weeks and also featured Sun Insurance and Fiji Sun.

Fiji Badminton Association secretary Norman Bentley said Fiji Sun finished third in the competition after beating Sun Insurance 8-5 in the third and fourth place play-offs.

He said the association was pleased with the performance of each team, the turnout each week and the tournament's success.

"Association president Barry Whiteside who was on hand to present the prizes said the association was looking to keep the momentum of the sport growing and looks to hold similar tournaments for juniors and doubles partners in the near future," he said.

"In addition, with its efforts to promote the sport, they would like to inform the public of the many opportunities to be part of the badminton community with badminton socials every Friday and coaching clinics every Saturday in the Yat Sen School hall."
