The EDBA Junior Spring Open will be run according to new age categories this year, in line with Badminton Alberta and Badminton Canada. This means we will have u12/u14/u16/u19 age categories based on year of birth. To be eligible for u12 a player must be born in the year 2002 or later, for u14 a player must be born in the year 2000 or later, to be eligible for u16 one must be born in the year 1998 or later, and to be eligible for u19 one has to born in 1995 or later.
Individual age groupings u12/u14/u16/u19 will compete against each other in elimination events A and B. There will be singles, doubles and mixed (boys and girls) categories. Winners of the first round advance to A, while losers of the first round will move on to the B event (also an elimination event to the finals).
The A event will be played with feather shuttlecocks (preliminary rounds – Victor Tourney 77, semi-finals and finals Victor Master 77). The B events will continue after round one with plastic shuttlecocks (Yonex 300) until the B finals.
Cost for the event will be $25 for one event, $35 for two and $40 for all three events (singles, doubles and mixed). Players who register with payment by Thursday, April 10, 2014, 6 PM will receive a free tournament t-shirt.

This year, the EDBA Open tournament will be combined with a Saturday afternoon barbecue.
Individual events are doubles only – mens doubles, ladies doubles, and mixed doubles – and will have an A and B event. Winners of the first round advance in A, while losers of the first (and second) round will advance to the B event (also an elimination event to the B finals).
The A event will be played with feather shuttlecocks (preliminary rounds – Victor Tourney 77; semi-finals and finals Victor Master 77). The B events will continue after round one with plastic shuttlecocks (Yonex 300) until the B finals.
This year, besides individual event prizes, there will also be a team prize awarded to the top club overall. All players are invited to attend as representatives of their club. There is no limit to the number of individuals from one club that can enter. The team prize will be awarded to the club with the lowest top placement (best result) combined total in each category. For example, a club with a 3rd place in men’s doubles, 2nd place in women’s double and 1st place in mixed doubles (3 +2 +1 = 6) would beat the club with 2nd place in men’s doubles, 1st place in women’s doubles but their best mixed doubles team came in 4th place (1+2+4 = 7). In the event of a tie, the greater differential between total points for and against will count towards the tiebreak.
Cost for the event will be $30 for one event, and $45 for both events (doubles and mixed). Included in the fee is a tournament t-shirt, plus a food and beverage ticket to the barbecue.
There will be a barbecue (hotdogs/hamburgers) offered on Saturday afternoon 5:00 PM upon completion of play the first day, and will be a nominal fee ($2 food tickets/$1 beverage tickets) for all non-competitors. There will also be draws for prizes for the barbecue.
