Will be held on Presidents’ Day (Monday, February 19th) at the Northern Virginia Badminton Club in Ashburn, Virginia (novabadmintonclub.com) from 9 AM to 2 PM.
To qualify, a competitor must have attended an Ivy League school, must live in the Washington, DC area, and must be a member of the Washington, DC alumni club for his school. (Alums of Seven Sisters schools can compete as players for one of the Ivy teams).
The competition will include matches in men’s and women’s singles and doubles. Competitors in each category will play two rounds of single, 11-point games to determine rankings. Subsequent competition in each category will be single elimination, best-two-out-of-three full (21-point) games.
Each team may enter only one competitor (individual or pair) in each category (so, to compete in all events a team requires a minimum of 4 players - 2 men and 2 women). Up to eight competitors may be registered per team (6 players and two alternates).
The entry fee is $50 per team plus $6 per player. Shuttlecocks will be provided. A team trophy will be awarded.
