2015 DC Junior Open
February 21-22, 2015
If you cannot play in this tournament, have a look at other
USAB Sanctioned Events or
USAB Region-I events, or subscribe to the
yahoo DC badminton mailing list.
- The Maryland Junior Open was an annual event in the Baltimore area,
but attracting a large number of players from the tri-state (MD, DC, VA).
In 2015 we decided to use a new gym in the DC suburbs, and are
thus renaming the event to the DC Junior Open (DCJO).
- The 2015 DCJO is a
USAB ranking tournament,
see current Jr. ranking.
- Registration: use
tournamentsoftware.com for registration. You can also find draws and matches here now. For convenience
here is a listing of all
first three matches, and times, for most players.
The tournament is USAB sanctioned
and will follow all its rules and regulations. All players need
to be a USAB member, or purchase a new membership ($40/year invidual, or $50/year clubs).
For U11 through U19 you need an individual USAB membership to participate, for U9 and U25 a USAB club
membership is sufficient since it is not part of ranking.
We highly recommend you register/update your membership using
USAB railstation website first, and then register for DCJO. Also print out your
USAB membership card and bring it with you to the tournament.
You MUST bring your USAB membership card so we can verify name and expiration dates.
