On Sunday 7th April we will be running a Mens Doubles Tournament and would like to invite players from local clubs to join in.
There are already a few tournaments run locally that attract entries from county-standard players, and those who play in the top couple of divisions of the League, but not much for everyone else.
To start to address this, the tournament is specifically targeted at players who compete in the bottom couple of divisions of the League.
The aim being to provide an additional opportunity for those players to compete against others of a similar ability to help them improve.
There will be no 'knockout' phase, and each match will consist of a single game, to ensure that players get a good number of games against a range of different pairs.
Date, Time, Location:
Sunday 7th April 2019
Starting at 9am
Latest finish at 12pm
Balcarras Sports Centre
Entry is open to all male players who compete in the bottom 2 divisions of the Gloucestershire Badminton League (Mens Divisions 5+6, Mixed Divisions 4+5).
Non-League or Social players are welcome to enter, as long as they realise that they could be playing against players a lot stronger than themselves.
Play in a higher division? This tournament is not aimed at you, sorry. Please consider entering the tournaments run by the Glos Performance Centre instead.
Players should identify a partner to enter with.
Both players in a partnership should submit an entry form.
If you are unable to find a partner and would like to be paired up with someone else by the tournament organisers, then please enter 'PARTNER REQUIRED' on the form below.
Exact format will vary depending on number of entries received, and will be confirmed after the entry deadline.
Most likely a round-robin or ladder variant will be used. Note that there will be no knockout phase - all players will continue to play until the end of the event!
Expect to spend over half the time on court, playing at least 6 games.
£5 per player
