Thanks to the tournament sponsors Oliver Canada, Desjardins DFSI and Franklin Templetin Investments for providing prizes and donations for lucky draw!

The format of this tournament was designed and implemented by Mark Grantham in 1975. On March 8th, 1975, the first annual Gloucester Team Invitational Tournament was played with 16 teams at Charlesbois and Cantebury High School. In 1987 the tournament was retitled to the Mark Grantham Badminton Team Challenge.

Mark Grantham has passed away on Dec 4, 2013 at age of 82.

ODBA had a t-shirt presented to Mark Grantham's son, Mark Grantham Jr.

This year the grand draw prize was awarded to the lucky winner, Matt Medbury of Team Ohana. Congratulations Matt! In the photo, Matt is seen receiving the grand draw prize – his choice of Oliver badminton racquet – from the sponsor and representative of Desjardins Financial Security, William Szepesi.
