For those who are competing:

b) In case you have lost the schedule I previously sent out, I will resend to competitors shortly.

c) Don’t forget to bring sports drinks if you want them (we only supply water).

For everyone else:

a) There will not be any normal badminton tomorrow. All courts will be used for the competition.

b) If you are coming to watch some of the matches, please let us know when you arrive (we might have small jobs for you to do).

This is a social competition. It might be good to win, but it’s more important to have a good time. Good luck to all.

Good luck to everyone and enjoy the day.

Competition Registrations Now Closed

Hi all, registration for our upcoming October 25th competition have now closed.

The following list summarises who is playing in which event.

Further information, such as event start times, rules, etc, etc, will be emailed out soon.
