The next North Tyneside Social Tournament is on Sunday, March 19, starting 12.30pm, at John Spence Community High School in North Shields.
It comprises men’s and ladies‘ doubles and mixed doubles, and anyone from North Tyneside as well as from outside of the borough can enter.
Games are played in groups, so everyone gets plenty of matches. The entry fee is just £5 for one event, or £8 for two, per person, and anyone aged 14 upwards can enter.
No league or county players will be accepted and the emphasis is on an afternoon of friendly, enjoyable competition.
Trophies will be awarded to all event winners and runners-up, and there will be special trophies for outstanding performances by players aged over 50.
Volunteers from Bewicke Badminton Club, which plays at John Spence, and from the North Tyneside Badminton Partnership, will ensure that the tournament runs smoothly.
The closing date for entries is Monday, March 13, and entry forms can be obtained from leisure centres in North Tyneside, or by contacting the tournament secretary Viv Harmer, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (0191) 2637686 or 07881 375559.
