Hello Everyone!


Start off the Fall 2010 season with us at the $5 Badminton Tournament @ Santa Teresa - Fall 2010!!! The tournament will be held on Saturday, October 2, 2010! This tournament is for EVERYONE OF ALL AGES!!! This is NOT a high school tournament.

Like our 1st tournament back in Fall 2009, our Spring 2010 tournament was a huge success. We had a great time, great food, and a great t-shirt! We have sold out the past two tournaments! So please sign up soon!

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, October 2!!!
