2013 Yonex Ottawa International Challenge – Badminton Tournament

After several years without International Level Badminton in the Nation’s Capital, Badminton Canada and Carleton University are pleased to announce that the 2013 Yonex Ottawa International Challenge Badminton Tournament will be held at the Raven’s Nest, Carleton University from June 25 to 29, 2013. This event will feature not only Canada’s top international players (including Olympians Michelle Li and Alex Bruce and Toby Ng) but also many other top ranked international players. To-date entries have been received from Brazil, Denmark, India, Jamaica, Netherlands, Scotland, USA and England. Representation from more countries is expected before the entry closing date of June 4, 2013.

To raise the awareness of badminton as an Olympic sport, Badminton Canada have introduced a special offer for High School and Elementary school students (as well as their parents, coaches and teachers) to see, first-hand, elite badminton players from around the world competing against Canada’s top international and national levels stars.
