Rick Steves

“We want to work with people who are always seeking to better themselves, whether that is by becoming a better-informed investor, trying a new form of investing, or investing as a community to share ideas.”

Vantage has announced a partnership with Activated Badminton Challenge (ABC) in its ongoing mission of giving back to local communities by bringing together badminton enthusiasts from around the country, encouraging fitness, and healthy competition, and helping to build social communities.

Activated Badminton Challenge (ABC) is an initiative bringing Aussies from all walks of life together through organised competitive and social badminton events.

ABC kicked off its 2023 program with a tournament in Sydney in January, with players showcasing their skills and determination on court. The event was attended by badminton fans, friends, and families, creating an energetic and supportive atmosphere. A total of 14 tournaments will be held across Australia, including in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth, and Hobart, with $88,000 AUD prize money on offer. The next leg of the tournament in June will be held in Melbourne.

“Bringing together experienced athletes and enthusiastic amateurs in a fun environment”

The multi-asset trading platform for Contracts for Difference (CFD) on Forex, Commodities, Indices and Shares is committed to supporting Aussies who want to lead healthy lifestyles and try new activities.

Vantage will be working with Activated Badminton Challenge to encourage entry-level participation, with the goal of developing the sport into the mass-participation activity it deserves to be.

Jack Kelly, Head of AU Sales at Vantage Markets, said “By bringing together experienced athletes and enthusiastic amateurs in a fun environment, the Activated Badminton Challenge is spearheading the growth of an exciting sport here in Australia. This mission makes ABC the perfect partner for Vantage Markets as we have convened a diverse team to create unstoppable drive and limitless creative energy within our business.

“We want to work with people who are always seeking to better themselves, whether that is by becoming a better-informed investor, trying a new form of investing, or investing as a community to share ideas. By giving people the opportunity to try a new, fast-paced and fast-growing sport, ABC aligns with this vision of ours.”
