If you are paying by e-transfer, please send the registration fee to epay@edba.org and mention the player’s name in the note’s section.  Our EDBA treasurer Felix Yuen will be the person depositing the money into an EDBA account.  The question is “What is your favorite sport?” and the answer is “badminton.” In the meantime, please email tournament@edba.org the e-transfer payment information and the registration form in a single email.

The individual clubs are encouraged to consolidate their players’ information and identify the partners.  If you need a partner, please write down “Partner Requested.”  The registration form (with an example included) can be downloaded below:
