Traders Insurance Sponsors NMBF Team Tournament

Traders Insurance Company will once again sponsor this year's badminton competition now dubbed the Traders Insurance Badminton Team Tournament.

Traders Insurance, one of the leading providers in the CNMI of non-life insurance and surety products, has extended its assistance to the Northern Marianas Badminton Federation to hold its second annual badminton team tournament this month.

The competition is expected to draw over 100 members.

Company president Lito Mendoza said he was thrilled to extend his company's assistance to the fastest growing sports group in the CNMI.

He said that his company also aims to promote the sport in the Marianas. “We are glad to lend a hand to the group that has shown tremendous increase of active members especially among the CNMI youth,” he said.

Mendoza said the badminton group has shown great potential as it has recruited members of different nationalities. NMBF currently has members that lists Korea, China, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, USA, the Philippines, and the CNMI as their home countries.

“Our company fully supports the group that promotes healthy and fun activities. I believe the group has improved so much that now they have qualified coaches to teach each team members during the tournament,” said Mendoza.

“We are looking forward to the tournament to promote friendship among members and produce cream of the crop players for future international tournaments,” he added.

The Traders Insurance Badminton Team Tournament is open only to members with badminton skills grade from A to C. It will consist of at least eight teams with at least eight members each. The teams will have corresponding sponsors, which will be determined based on availability of sponsorships.

The tournament is officially scheduled to run from Nov. 22 to Dec. 14 during Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays within the scheduled dates. The team tournament will include adult and youth divisions on men's and women's singles, men's and women's doubles, and mixed doubles.

Registration is now ongoing and application forms are available at the Gilbert C. Ada Gymnasium from Mondays through Thursdays in the morning and on Saturdays and Sundays during the regular badminton practice games.

Registration fee is $30 for each adult participant. Youth members, aged 14 to 18, will pay a registration fee of only $20 while youth members aged 10 to 13 will only register for $15 each. The fee includes game fees and banquet fees for the awarding ceremony in December.

NMBF is still looking and asking for the generosity of avid sponsors to help the group out with its other requirements for this event.
