Badminton tournament offering friendly games

Badminton players in North Tyneside who want to play against different people in a friendly, social atmosphere, have the ideal opportunity later this month.

The North Tyneside Badminton Partnership is running its third Adult Social Badminton Tournament on Sunday, October 27, at Hadrian Leisure Centre in Wallsend.

The tournament is open to anyone aged 16 and over, provided that they do not play on any club league teams or represent the county.

The first two tournaments were highly successful and were enjoyed by all who took part.

There will be ladies’ and men’s doubles and mixed doubles events.

All games will initially be played in groups so that everyone is assured of plenty of matches.

The tournament will start at 12.30pm with ladies’ and men’s doubles, with the mixed doubles beginning at around 3pm.

Play is scheduled to finish at 5pm.

Prizes will be awarded to all winners and runners-up.

The entry fees are £5 per player for one event or £8 for two events.

The closing date for entries is Monday, October 21.

Entry forms can be obtained either by emailing or by downloading a form from the North Tyneside Badminton Partnership Facebook page
