Mumbai: Taarini Suri was at her impressive best and enjoyed a highly rewarding day winning the girls’ under-17 singles and girls’ under-19 singles crowns in the CCI-GMBA badminton championship 2022 for boys’ and girls’ under-17 and under-19, and played at the CCI badminton courts.
In the U-17 final, the number one seed Taarini encountered quite a strong challenge from second seed Riya Vinherkar but managed to win in two grueling games at 21-16, 21-18 to emerge victorious.
