Men’s doubles shuttlers Man Wei Chong-Shia Chun Kang and mixed doubles pair Chen Tang Jie-Peck Yen Wei were on their game to upset their senior opponents as Petaling BC defeated favourites Ampang Jaya Badminton Club 11-7 at the Arena of Stars here yesterday.

World No. 36 pair Chen Tang Jie-Peck Yen Wei also had to stay sharp in order to defeat Lukhi Apri Nugroho-Chau Hoi Wah. They showed their determination by coming back from a game down to earn a 3-1 match win.
