Mohammad Saad shared his emotions about the tournament,
I have been playing badminton on a regular basis for the last four months. A week before the tournament, I got the information about it. I feel very proud that I won the tournament. It was not possible without the help of my teammates. With good coordination among the teammates, we secured the first position. Specially thankful to NSU and Coach, who provide me with these wonderful opportunities.
