2nd Annual NMBF Team Tourney set on October

NMBF Tournament Committee is now in preparation for the upcoming league-type tournament set tentatively on October 25.
According to Macoi Aguda, NMBF Tournament Committee chair, the tournament format will have one team to play five events of six games in one day that will consist men’s and women’s singles, men’s and women’s doubles, and mixed doubles.
The league-type tournament will be a seven-day, twice-a-week event that will run for at least four weeks. Shuttlers should play two games in any of the five events each day of the tournament. No player will be allowed to play three games in one day.
Each team in any of the six games will accumulate all wins and the squad that will have the most wins will be declared the champion. Cash Prizes and trophies await the top three finishers. Team with the best uniforms will also be awarded.
Organizers of the tournament have already sought several companies for sponsorship and are hoping that they will shoulder the team’s entrance fee.
Registration for the team tournament is now ongoing. Deadline of entries will be on the second week of October. Drawing and distribution of players will be announced on later dates.
The NMBF held its first team tournament on Oct. 6, 2007 where close to 80 players joined the competition.
NMBF aims to promote the Olympic sport of badminton especially to the local youth and hopefully send one or two local players as representatives to international competitions in the future.
