Court bookings are accepted on a first-come-first-served basis. Teams dropping in without pre-registering cannot be accommodated if there are no available courts for the session.

2016 EDBA Open Badminton Tournament – May 14-15, 2016

The two day tournament is on May 14 and 15 at W.P. Wagner School (6310 Wagner Road) in Edmonton.

The EDBA Open has a minimum age of 16 as of January 1, 2016.

This year, we added two more age categories, “55+ to 60” and “60 +” to the A, B, C level.

Basically players can choose to enter by level of play as in past EDBA Opens (i.e. entering as A, B, or C players). Senior players also have another choice which is to enter by one of the two age categories (either “55+ to 60” or “60+”). Senior players can still enter by A, B, or C level instead of by age group if they so choose but not both.

The deadline to submit the entry along with full payment is on or before , April 27 (Wednesday) at 5:30 pm at the EDBA PO Box.
