A total of 14 teams participated, of which two were Indonesian and the rest Filipino. The Indonesian players demonstrated their superior skills, having played for some time in their own leagues at Victoria Park and other venues.

In the latest friendly, Indonesian team New Style outscored the Filipino team Real Smashers, 30-28, to romp off with the championship.

Real Smashers settled for the first runner-up title.

The other Indon team, Arema, scored 30 points and finish second runner-up by defeating Sound of Music, produced 25 points.

The Filipina spikers placed third runner-up.

In both volleyball and badminton tournaments, participating teams pay a small fee that goes to the Leisure and Cultural Services Department’s charge for using government sport venues, Barcelona said.

But the uniforms for the playing teams are sponsored by the Sultan Kudarat governor according to her. In return for the support, the team undertakes charity projects out of its savings for the Muslim and Bla’an communities in the mountain areas of Sultan Kudarat.

Badminton matches were launched only in the first week of February for any interested domestic worker groups to join, Barcelona said.

“Hindi naman po ito para sa competition na pagalingan kundi para din po sa pagtulong sa kabataan at ehersisyo ng mga manlalarong badminton talaga ang laro,” she said.
