Looking forward to Suffolk’s Inclusive Badminton Tournament

The ActivLives Inclusive Badminton Tournament is being held in Ipswich on the 20th November. 

This tournament is targeted at our own local players who play regularly with ActivLives – many of the competitors also compete in Special Olympics competitions.

This will be a Singles tournament consisting of round-robin group games. All of the competitors will be ‘divisioned’ based upon their playing abilities, with a system of ‘head starts’ also being used to try to ensure that there are plenty of close games. It is planned to round the event off with a Team Relay, making use of a novel format used at a recent Youth Olympics. Prior entry for the competitors will be required.

All of the umpires and scorers for this event will be volunteers – thank you in advance to all of them!  

The event will be delivered by ActivLives, with the support of Special Olympics Suffolk.    

Covid-19 measures (Hands-Face-Space-Fresh Air), will be in place at this event.
