Tuesday May 1st - Nessac in Hudson Bay starting at 10:00am
Top 2 in each pod will advance to Nessac
Coaches will have to advise the players to pack lunches because to play any type of badminton the evening will run late. Everyone should be there for a 4:30 start, and the teams that are closer need to start earlier(4:00pm). I am hoping everything is done around 7:30pm.
Host will need to find out how many teams each town is bringing, so they can make a draw. Depending on your numbers, but my suggestion is a round robin 2 pools of 4 or 5 with the top 2 crossing over for the final. The games would go up to 21 with a two game total point. Remember if you do not have a full draw ask the towns if they have a third team, some will. It is not as important to find a winner, as it is to get the players as many games as possible.
Remember that Pods will have your 2 best teams, so that might be your A or B teams. We do not have seperate pods or championships for a B league in Badminton.
A full team is 2 of each category. Host can put more teams in to even out their draws or ask visiting teams to bring more if needed.
