Unfortunately guys often underestimate girls, but then you could always use that to your advantage .

it jus happened that they play each other twice becuase of the draw
this happens in many tourney's like U19 T&D and unoffssa
as for the lighting....this is not the worse i've seen
there are many other places that are worse off for tourney's
and for the medals i would agree....i went for the medals and prizes
prizes are actually quite consistant other than that one or two of them
the only good prizes comes from Singles A Boys where a bag and raquet was given out.....

First off I'd like to say that some of the things you mentioned were true.Ie lighting and medals. After that you made some odd points. Someone before me had already corrected that victor had a bye first round so thats how your "friend" played twice. I was at the desk while your friends were complaining waiting for something else. I remember hearing complain that they have an advantage of playing you guys twice that they have an advantage of knowing how you play, but thats true for you guys too.... Also on the note of tearing skin.Suck it up,its just skin it grows up.If it burns or stings play through it. Nothing MAJOR will happen crybaby .Also many people were cramping up.The times were odd so for the people that went home after singles and came back in the morning bodies didnt get enough time to heal obviously. Also the "therapist" wasn't getting paid he is just a student taking some medical courses. Thats all

he wrapped my calf pretty good with ice and a slight massage
he isn't there for nothing
but yea....they definately dont have enuff gear for every single injury
they just prepare for certain injuries that most players will get in tournaments, (eg. pulls, strains ect...)

Prizes overall were consistent, but there were 1 or 2, and if you were that one person who got a Black Knight bag while someone in the same category got Yonex, I think you'd be a little jealous too.

Seems sketchy. Felt more like he didn't want the hassle of finding them for me. As for calling me a crybaby, that was quite unappropriate. I don't know if it's happened to you before, but ripped skin that's in contact with your grip will hurt quite a bit because your grip is tacky and always moving therefore pulling and ripping it on every hit. I think you'd want to treat it before playing too. If you want to be ignorant about it that's fine. It's done and I don't really care.
Overall though, it was an OK tournament. I enjoyed playing badminton and these little things never ruined my experience. These are all MINOR problems and if you guys read my original post. I even stated, I understand that this tournament is run by university students, not professionals, and it could be a BIT better. If you guys can't take criticism, then that's fine, however all that I mentioned WERE problems, could've been avoided/improved and if you were in the shoes of the people facing these problems, I think you would be a bit upset/annoyed.
