YSAA’s Badminton Smash was held on April 27 and 28 at the Canada Games Centre. The two-day event split elementary schools from Whitehorse and Watson Lake.

Having Badminton Smash over two days allowed for an increase in the number of games played while ensuring that the number of athletes could remain the same.

This year a pyramid tournament was held with games limited to 15 minutes.

Athletes could challenge another to compete on one of the six courts available.

Many athletes improved considerably during the day as they learned more through play with each game played. A total of 149 players attended the two-day event.
