Continuing a fun tradition, "Badminton virus" added with its competence, equipment and experience, to the organizing of the badminton and music festival "Vilnius feather 2013", which took part on July 28th in Vilnius Lukiškių square.
The tournament went on in 8 badminton courts, in comparison to last year's six. The amount of teams increased as well. The were 32, instead of 24 teams last year, consisting of at least 4 persons. We send our congratulations to the winners — suru.lt team, who, after an extremely tense final, won against Marsas with two points advantage.
Two additional courts were set up for the spectators to try out this wonderful activity. And it is great fun to note that a few of the event's visitors brought and put up their own badminton nets, thus adding to a relaxing atmosphere.
During the tournament, and after it, there were two DJ's and four different music groups performing.
After the main event, the umpires participated in the improvised mini-tournament, where Sergejus K. and Urtė P. were the winners.
