    Hi there,

    Over the past year I have been playing A LOT of badminton (20-35 hours a week) with players of all levels, lately with a B level provincial player. He tells me I would do well in C level provincials so now I want to know how on earth do I start playing provincial tournaments and not just open civils? I am 22 and in a University that doesn't have a team. Looking to join men's doubles. If anyone has some insight as to how to get the ball rolling that would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!

    The only ABC I can see is the Yonex/sports expert circuit, which there is no point to join mid way through... :S All tournament applications forms have a field for which club you are from, I'm not sure if I can leave that blank. I will call them up before the next ABC while they take in applications and see how/if I can join.

    If anyone else has some more info on this please feel free to share!

    Wouldn't directly asking the provincial player be a good idea....?

    The only provincial players I know and play with all did tournaments through clubs. Mainly Club Badminton Lachine, the coach would take care of most of it he told me :S

    Atreyu, where do you play now? Do you also play regional (RSL, YMCA, etc.) tournaments?

    I play at downtown YMCA, China Town YMCA, Concordia university, Dawson college and MontrealBadmintonClub. I will be at the ymca tonight 9:10-10:45pm playing with 3 other B level players. I attended a few open civils and that's it, nothing regional or provincial.
