The duo of Jojo Lazaro and Christy Villaflor bested five other pairs to rule the Northern Marianas Badminton Federation weekend open, which returned after a weeklong break last Saturday at the Gilbert C. Ada Gymnasium.

Lazaro and Villaflor defeated the pair of Shirley Kim and Bong Soller, 21-19, 21-16, in the finals. They earned the first finals berth after a hard-earned 21-15, 20-22, 21-19 decision against the tandem of NMBF president Marconi Calindas and Michelle Callon.

Kim and Soller, meanwhile, dispatched the Marlene Peraja-Edwin Montoya tandem in the other semis match, 21-14, 21-19.

The weekend open is a double-elimination round format depending on the number of pairs that join in the one-day games, which is being held every Saturday morning from 8am to 11am.

The weekend open is also a practice session for NMBF players to prepare them for the upcoming tournament on April 19.
