2013-2014 EDBA Junior Training and Interclub Competition

For the junior training program, registration must be in person starting at 12:30 PM Saturday, Oct 19th, at W.P. Wagner. Only the first 36 registrants (age 10 and older) will be allowed and will commence playing at 1:00 PM. It is a 6 week session, and ccst is $50 (payable to EDBA). Please give a warm welcome to Lionel Chong, our new head coach, who will be running the program, and introduce yourselves when you come to register your children.

Adult Interclub competition will start at 3:00 PM, and clubs are free to send one or many players (no limit as of yet) who will be competing individually in a doubles ladder (similar to Derrick and Glenora), five players to an assigned court alternating doubles partners until everyone partners once with everyone else in the same court. Players will be ranked in a ladder system, and will move up or down the ladder rankings as they win or lose their court. Clubs are free to send as many players as they want, but again, space will be limited to the first 35 that show. An important difference is that this year COURT 1 (composed of the highest-skilled players) WILL BE PLAYING WITH FEATHER SHUTTLECOCKS. There is no cost for adult interclub ladder to EDBA members.

Next Saturday we’ll start up the Junior Interclub competition, which will alternate with the adult ladder bi-weekly.
