The Coffs Harbour Badminton Club will be hosting our 2019 – Northern NSW regional club team challenge
Date: Saturday 21st September & Sunday 22nd September
Competition will start with local clubs on the Saturday morning from 11am.
Clubs travelling the furthest (like Newcastle, Central Coast and perhaps UON) will have the first games scheduled after 12pm or even 1pm to allow for safe travel
Competition with conclude 6pm Saturday and recommence Sunday morning at 9am. The tournament is aimed to complete by midday.
Everyone is welcome to stay on and play socially after any finals and presentations.
We will still have our combined teams dinner on the Saturday night somewhere locally.
The event will be free for Members of Badminton NSW… if not $25 per person will be required to participate
The need to hold the competition over 2 days has come about due to the increasing participation of our regional clubs every year and a desire to allow travelling clubs extra time to travel.
These dates were chosen – based on feedback received to keep the event around September, away from any school holidays and avoid the Father’s day weekend.
More details and information will be realised over the next few weeks/month.
However please save these dates and start broadcasting this annual event to your club members and players.
We hope that this announcement will kick start the enthusiasm that this yearly events brings.
We also recommend that clubs should elect to be proactive in fundraising as soon as possible – as this will lighten the load of any additional club/team/player expenses that might be associated with the 2 day event this year.
David from the Coffs Harbour Badminton club – has said he will be researching accommodation options… to educate and hopefully reduce the overall costs for everyone.
Feel free to contact myself of David if you have any questions.
It would be nice to have an official response from each club concerning their intentions this year – by next week 17th March
This is not numbers of player or teams that you are sending – just that you have received this information and are willing or not willing to support this event… and add any feedback or questions of course.
