Umpire Clinic coming up.. Saturday, April 12

Saturday, April 12,  8:30 AM - 8 PM

Registration fee $25 per person ($20/person if you register with a group of 4 or more).

Instructor: Chris Lawrence, USA Badminton, 
Pan-American Badminton Certified Referee & Umpire

Venues: Reverchon Recreation Center - Dallas, TX (morning to early afternoon) and
MATRIX at Prestonwood Tower/MATRIX - Dallas, TX (afternoon to evening)

This clinic is open to all badminton enthusiasts. The last time the clinic was held in our region was in 2010!!!

At the Clinic, the instructor will go over the official rules of the game, how to umpire and keep score in the classroom. He will also observe the umpires in action (full on court training with open play games at available club matches). At the end of the clinic, the instructor will administer the certification exam (materials and booklets will be provided prior to exam)
This is a rare opportunity for our area, the last clinic held in Dallas produced numerous certified umpires for our region.

We hope you consider becoming trained and certified umpires; it’s really a rare and great opportunity and 
Best of all you'll get the best seats in the house for all those exciting elite badminton matches!!

Details and Sign up form is available below.

Saturday Apr 19th: No badminton but volunteers needed for Spring Carnival

posted Apr 14, 2014, 2:55 PM by Matthias Odisio   [ updated Apr 14, 2014, 2:57 PM ]

There will *not* be badminton (neither classes nor open play) on Saturday April 19th.                                                          
Reverchon will be holding its annual Spring Carnival and Egg Hunt and the whole center will be used for the event.        

Our club is expected to help, as we always do. It's like a reflex.            
We can help by being at Reverchon at 9am and volunteer to help with concessions, game booths, setup and cleanup, and the egg hunt itself. If you can not make it at 9 but a bit later, that would help too.                
We can also help by donating candy and Easter baskets.                                                                             

Sign up sheets for Easter volunteers will be put up tonight and Wednesday night. You may also contact Kim <kimvichi@gmail.com>.
