The Biz Link Properties Purple League Corporate 2021/2022 (BHPLC) recently closed the curtains for its second edition where Dr. KO triumphed after defeating Senheng in the finals (11-3) at Sports Arena Sentosa. They proved that they can perform on the badminton court as great as they do in the boardroom.
Dr KO, the leading skin specialist began dominating early on as Dhami Tula Ram – Lim Loong Meng of the men’s doubles category breezed past Senheng’s Pong Chit Pei-Yong Chee Seng (11-0,11-10,11-9). However, things took a turn in the mixed doubles pair where Senheng’s Junior Oh Jia Pang – Yap Yee claimed victory (6-11,11-10,8-11,11-10,9-11) over Dr KO.
Dr KO then proceeded to win the next two matches which made Senheng’s chances to win the title out of reach. There was no need for Dr KO to play the remaining men’s doubles match as they walked away with the RM50,000 cash prize while Senheng grabbed the runner-up cash prize worth RM25,000.
Soo Teck Zhi, Dr KO’s team manager said, “Words cannot express how thrilled I am with this victory. I did not expect our team to achieve this feat and I’m grateful to all the players for producing a wonderful display in our glory to success.”
Also present at Sports Arena Sentosa was Malaysia Purple League’s Chief Operating Officer (COO), Ho Khek Mong who said, “I hope that through this Biz Link Properties Corporate Purple League platform, many more corporate entities can understand the sport and eventually get more involved with their support and backing. It is also a platform which can provide avenues for retired players to continue their badminton careers,”.
The third and fourth placing battle took place between Oriental Real Estate and Top Glove Badminton Club. Oriental Real Estate emerged victorious as they were one of the top teams throughout the competition. They defeated Top Glove Badminton Club (9-3) and took home the third-place prize money of RM12,500.
