Recognised as one of the major sporting events within the Force, the Police Annual Badminton Championships 2001 finals were held at the Police Officers' Club on September 29.

Attended by Chairman of the Police Badminton Club Foo Tsun-kong and Vice-chairman Wong Pak-nin, the finals were even more competitive this year following the decision to select entries for the Men's Singles by age group, and for the Men's Doubles to be restricted by pre-determined players' grading to offset the dominance of some Force members.

Open to all serving regular and auxiliary officers' as well as their civilian counterparts, this annual event attracted no less than 160 Force members.

Following the hard-fought preliminary rounds, finals winners were declared in the following eight titles:

* Men's Singles (Open) - Police Constable Wong Hoi-yiu

* Men's Singles (Senior) - Inspector Wong Shu-chung

* Men's Singles (Veteran) - Senior Detective Police Constable Law Kam-hon

* Men's Singles (Master) - Station Sergeant Chun Chi-wai

* Men's Doubles - Chief Inspector Leung Kwok-chun and Inspector Ma Wai-hing

* Ladies' Singles - Woman Inspector Wong Ping-ping

* Ladies' Doubles - Woman Detective Police Constable Tong Yee-man and Senior Police Communications Officer Lai Mei-wah

* Mixed Doubles - Chief Inspector Hui Chun-tak and Woman Detective Police Constable Tong Yee-man

This year's event was declared a resounding success with participation by most of the Force's top players. Trophies and prizes will be awarded to all winners and runners-up at the Police Badminton Club Annual General Meeting 2001/2001.

The next Annual Badminton Championships have been scheduled for August/September 2002.
