Please signup for the tournament if you are interested in representing the meetup team. Each team will need to have about 10 players total (about 7 men and 3 women). Based on the number of signups, we may have one or two teams. If we don't have enough players for two teams, then a single team will be formed on a first-come, first-served basis.
Cost for team entry is $200 (so about $20-30 per person) but each person also must pay $10 membership fee for MassBad (Massachusetts Badminton Assn). Fees cover the cost of feather shuttles and entry to Boston Badminton on date of event.
Captains need to have their lineups submitted at 8:45 am so players for the initial set need to be available before handing the lineup in. The matches start at 9 am. It looks like play will continue throughout the day to end about 9:30 pm. There are 11 teams! Bring snacks/drinks. We could coordinate ordering and bringing in more substantial food for lunch and dinner.
