Shuttletime Yankee Tournament
A social, fun event for our beginner juniors (either clubs, schools or after school programs). This is a participation event and results of games are not used to determine winners.
Players are given the opportunity to get some match experience against others of a similar ability, an opportunity to learn to umpire properly and make some new friends. Players should be at the “merit” or “bronze” level of the BWF Shuttletime Badge System – so they need to be able to hit a shuttle (not at balloon badminton stage), and afterwards there will be shared pizza with a small prize-giving.
It is designed for our beginner U13 and U15 players (8 years and above) however older players are welcome.
- There will be a group warm up session and fun game to start with
- Players will receive a variety of games and get the opportunity to play with and against some better players
- Games are timed (rather than sets) for a duration of 8-10 minutes depending on entries
- Each player will get a minimum of 4 games
- Players are expected to umpire the other games and there will be some older children/adults around to assist with this.
- Prizes are drawn at random for the participants
