Funds raised will go towards the Baan Kok Wat Mai School where Outrigger Laguna Phuket Beach Resort has undertaken several long-term projects, such as library renovation, school toilet enhancements, and upgrading the playground, canteen and classrooms.

Each hotel team contributed B3,500 to compete in men’s doubles, women’s doubles and mixed doubles matches. JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa finished the day as overall champion after nearly 10 hours of competition.

“I’d like to thank all the hotel teams who participated,” said Leah Matters, Resort Manager at the Outrigger. “The players showed great spirit and sportsmanship to raise funds for a worthy cause – and to promote physical health benefits through sport.”
