Entry open to adult social badminton tournament in North Tyneside

Entry forms are now available for the next Adult Social Badminton Tournament organised by North Tyneside Badminton Partnership.

It will take place on Sunday, March 8, in the eight-court sports hall at John Spence Community High School in North Shields, from 1pm to around 5pm.

Events will consist of men’s and women’s doubles and mixed doubles.

All matches will initially be played in groups, so everyone will get plenty of games and will have the opportunity to play against different people.

Anyone aged 16 and over can enter, provided they are not currently playing for a club in the county leagues and are not county players.

It is aimed at the casual, social players who play for fun, and the emphasis is on enjoyment and friendly competition.

Entry fee is £5 for one event or £8 for two.

Trophies for the winners and runners-up are being provided by Jeera Tandoori of North Shields.

As the previous tournament was so popular and was oversubscribed, players are urged to send in their entry form as soon as possible. The closing date is Monday, March 2.

Entry forms can be obtained from leisure centres in North Tyneside or by emailing the tournament secretary on normawfd@blueyonder.co.uk
