$5 Badminton Doubles Tournament @ Santa Teresa
Santa Teresa High School is hosting a Badminton Doubles Tournament for EVERYONE OF ALL AGES!!! This is NOT a high school tournament.
And, ITS ONLY $5 PER EVENT!!!
This is a doubles tournament (mens, womens, AND MIXED!!!)
for only C and D Level players. I guarantee that no one will find a tournament this cheap ANYWHERE =)
Sign ups started since Thursday and spots are filling up fast!
Again, I invite everyone of all ages who are C and D level players to sign up and have a good time. In addition, just because the events are only $5, we will have a lot of features not normal to a badminton tournament:
a. We will have scorekeepers on the courts to give players the feel that they are playing a huge sporting event.
b. Draws will be posted on giant poster boards. In addition, if you win 1st place, you get to keep the poster boards =)
c. You will get a response right away on whether or not you are in the tournament, wait-list, etc... No more waiting til the day before a tournament to find out if you are going to play or not!
As for me, Mike Do, the tournament director, I have alot of experience running tournaments. I have ran or help run the MHAL Badminton tournament for four years, I made the tournament boards for MHAL for four years and CCS for the past two years.
So, if you are afraid that since this is such a cheap tournament and that it won't be running smoothly, I promise you that my team and I running this tournament will be working are very best so that everyone has a great experience at Santa Teresa.
I hope to see a lot of you on Saturday, September 19, and I thank you for helping out the 2010 Santa Teresa Saints Badminton Team.

bad4life - We have 8 courts in our gym. Santa Teresa currently plays in the Mount Hamilton division (MHAL), which is top league of Blossom Valley Athletic League. In MHAL, we send our top 3 from each event (doubles, singles, and mix) to compete in CCS.
This past season, Santa Teresa hosted the Semi-finals and Finals for the MHAL.
cooler - I'm a little confused on your post. Maybe you posted on the wrong thread or something.

Unfortunately, we will have to move our tournament to the following Saturday, September 26.
Could you e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have already signed up and iif you still want to be in the tournament, even with the date change, or you would like to withdraw from tournament.
Again, I am terribly sorry for the inconvenience. In hopes of making things up, tournament t-shirts will be sold for $5 each (originally $6 if you sign up for 2 or more events and $8 if you didn't). If you would like to buy a t-shirt, please e-mail me your shirt size (S-XL only).
I still hope that you are able to join us in our tournament and help make this a great tournament for everyone.
