Badminton wasn't always thought of as a backyard sport. Half a century ago, badminton enthralled Americans. The badminton super fans at Hub+Weber Architects, PLC
have brought back this fast-paced, complex sport as a social event and competition for colleagues, friends and residents to build community, match by match and shuttle by shuttle.
Billed as the only architecture firm-hosted badminton tournament in Covington, the Badminton Brawl V: Bye Bye, Birdie event took place on Friday, June 28, 2019, right outside their office located in the old train station on Pike Street.
In its fifth year, there was a surprise upset by a new player, Rajesh Talwar, who read about it somewhere online, showed up to compete, and went on to win the day.
