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.
