Twenty-four teams have registered for the Badminton Business House Competition.
Interest in playing badminton has increased since the Cook Islands Games says Badminton Cook Islands president Thomas Ngauru.
Today, Wednesday October 28, the 2020 Cook Islands Badminton Business House Competition begins and 24 teams have registered.
Badminton president Thomas Ngauru said the competition is split into two divisions.
Ngauru said the social division is for beginners and those looking for some fun games with 16 teams registered and will take place every Wednesday at the Telecom Sports Arena for the next four weeks.
The elite division is for experienced players looking for more competitive games.
He said eight teams have registered and will compete on Fridays. Each team is made up of at least six players and will play a round robin competition.
