The 2012 Sepak Takraw Championships were a huge success today in Saskatoon! The event was a single pool round robin format since most of the 4 divisions had 5 registered teams in each. Hence there was no need to play finals. At the end of all Round Robin matches, the final results were as follows:

Feehan Trojans (Saskatoon); 1st place and Gold Medal, Johnson Wildcats (Regina).

High School Girls: 3rd place by default, Senator Myles Venne School (La Ronge); 2nd place and Silver Medal, Opawikosakan School (Pelican Narrows); 1st place Gold Medal, Reindeer Lake School (Southend).

Many players commented on how much they love this sport and that they will be back next year, encouraging words indeed for Sepak Takraw Saskatchewan. All their hard work has paid off. The next event for many of these top teams will now be to advance to the 2012 Canadian Open Sepak Takraw Championships that will be hosted at the University of Regina, July 21 and 21, where international teams from China, Malaysia and likely USA will also be competing in the International division.
