Last Friday we spent a full and fun day at Citos for the Coca Cola Angkat Raketmu (Raise Your Racket) event. Over the past year Coca Cola has refurbished 16 badminton courts in 7 cities across Java in the hope of getting people to raise their rackets and get back into playing badminton. In 2014/2015 they plan to build 40 more courts across Java, Sumatra and Kalimantan, leading up to the World Championships in 2015 in Jakarta.
We have been fortunate to work alongside them for their campaign by making a short documentary style film on Indonesia’s legendary badminton player, Rudy Hartono. We had so much fun making the film and it was great to see it on the big screen at Citos.
You can watch our badminton film here:
There were plenty of school children there with their rackets, as well as appearances by Rudy Hartono and Christian Hadinata on the stage, and an exhibition space with photos of Indonesia’s badminton champions over the years.
Samudra was happy to have a full morning of playing with his little friend Zoe and they kept the audiences entertained with their shenanigans.
Wishing the team at Coca Cola success with their campaign and hope to see many people raising their rackets for badminton throughout Jakarta.
