Badminton returns at Ada Gym

The newly formed Northern Marianas Badminton Federation announced that the weekday and weekend badminton sessions at the Gilbert C. Ada Gymnasium returns starting tomorrow, July 10.

NMBF president Jonathan Perez said he has obtained permission from the Division of Sports and Recreation to restart badminton sessions at the gym from 7:30am to 10:30am Mondays to Fridays and from 4pm onwards on Saturdays.

NMBF cancelled their weekday and weekend badminton sessions at the Oleai Sports Complex to make way for the 6th Micronesian Games, which Saipan hosted from June 23 to July 2.

Badminton players regularly played at the gym on weekdays and weekends prior to the month-long Micro Games break. DSR charges $1 per day per player for the use of the facility's lights.

In related news, the regional association for badminton has adopted the rally point system for the sport and local badminton players are encouraged to adopt it in their games to quicken the pace of turnover on the courts' use. Matches are suggested to be best-of-three affairs and up to 25 points. (PR)

Badminton returns to Ada Gym

Northern Marianas Badminton Federation announced that weekday morning sessions for badminton resume this morning at the Gilbert C. Ada Gymnasium following a three-week break.

Starting today, the Oleai Sports Complex venue will be reserved for the NMBF and its members from 8am to 11am Sundays to Fridays.

Badminton's morning schedule was scratched last month to give way to the 2007 Sports Camp.

In addition to the morning schedule, the association has also secured evening sessions from 6pm to 9pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.

NMBF would like to thank the Division of Sports and Recreation, especially director Joe Lizama, for accommodating badminton sessions at the government-run indoor facility.
