26th July Update : Deadline for entry is September 15th, but currently 34 players registered and maximum is 64, so get your entry in before it is too late.
The Rugby & District Badminton Association has just confirmed the date for it’s annual BRITANNIC (handicapped) Tournament.
It will be on SUNDAY OCTOBER 8th between 10:00 and 18:00, at Rugby School Sports Centre in Horton Crescent.
Our aim is to run 2 sections Group “A” and Group “B” OR, if we get enough interest, we will run a MIXED section and a MEN’S section
The estimated cost will be around £10 per person (if we get 64 players), everything included or assume £12 per person (if we get 56 players), everything included (Shuttles, Trophies)
For those who haven’t played in our tournaments before, this is a handicapped event, where the handicaps are adjusted after each and every game and the eventual winner is the team who score the most points, and not necessarily the team who win the most games. Feedback from past events is that it’s a really good days badminton for a nominal fee. There is a large trophy presented to the winners and individual trophies for the 2 group winning teams.
Teams are made up of 4 players, this can be any combination. If we get a dedicated “Mixed” section, then the teams will be 2 Ladies and 2 Men, and if we cant get a dedicated “Mixed” section, then teams can be 1 lady and 3 men, or 3 ladies and 1 man. Handicaps will take all of this into account.
Initially this is open to RDBA club members, but dependant upon numbers, may be opened up to outside players.
