Many thanks to everyone at the UA Badminton Club for hosting a wonderful tournament. Many say it was the best one yet, well done Nico, Abhishek and the badz team. We will keep you posted for the next tournament!
The Tucson Badminton Club fun games and picnic was a successful and fun event. With the emphasis placed on fun, the players made groups of four and had to play badminton games designed to level the playing field and encourage some laughs.
Players had to play one game with their non dominant hand, play tied to their partner, wear an eye patch to reduce depth perception for another and finally play with a covered net. The normal ‘favorites’ in tournaments did not stand a chance and it was fun to see new players win some prizes!
After, the cookout served plenty of food and drinks and everyone socialized in the nice climate in the park. Here are the photos from the Tucson Badminton Club Fun Event. They are on our badminton tucson facebook page, but you do not need to be a member of facebook to view them.
Many thanks to the Tucson Badminton Club for hosting a great event.

With another year behind us, we decided to restart a tradition that has been overlooked for some time: The year-end banquet. This get-together serves as a chance for us to wrap up the (school) year and also bid a fond farewell to those taking their leave. This year has seen several veteran members moving on to bigger and better things and we wish them all the best. Special thanks to Yukari-san for setting up this special dinner and also for her generosity and consideration in putting together gifts for those who are leaving. Thanks also to Dr. Chan, Kevin, and the new officers Sierra, Nico, Stephanie, and Stephen for their part in putting together the collages. Feast your eyes (pun, of course, intended) on the link!
