Apollo Badminton Club are excited to announce their first annual Charity Badminton Championships, to be held at Vivacity Werrington Leisure Centre on the Sunday 13th April 2014 from 10am to 6pm. The one day event provides an opportunity to take on the areas best in; Mens and Ladies Singles, Doubles and Mixed doubles. Each event costs £6 to enter and guarantees at least three matches per discipline, with the early rounds being played in a round robin format. In addition to tournament play, there will also be a number of extra competitions to take part in, with a fastest smash competition (using a speed gun), 60 second rally challenge and badminton skittles!
The proceeds of this tournament will be going to Little Miracles, a Peterborough based charity who provide support for children with additional needs, disabilities and life limiting conditions, and recently appeared on DIY SOS!
As well as being a great opportunity to raise money for charity, it is a great chance to bring all badminton players from the local area together for a fun filled day of action. Plus, to reward your efforts on the court, The Ploughman pub across the road from the centre will be providing some post-tournament refreshments for everyone to enjoy!
The closing date for entries is 28th March, so please spread the word!
