South San Francisco Recreation Department presents the
April 7 2001 South San Francisco High - 400 B Street, South San Francisco, CA.
NOTE - THIS TOURNAMENT HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED SUCH THAT ALL EVENTS WILL BE COMPLETED ON SATURDAY. SEE THE SCHEDULE POSTED BELOW
The Northern California Junior Tournament was run in Berkeley for several decades by members of the Weller family. The tournament was professionally run and a great competitive and learning experience in which sportsmanship , etiquette, and adherence to the rules of badminton were emphasized. For various reasons they were forced to halt these valuable tournaments in the early 90's.
The tournament was re-introduced in the mid 90's with events in Davis and Santa Rosa. With the support of the SSF Recreation Department this tradition was moved in 1999 to South San Francisco. This first SSF tournament benefited from the new venue, had nearly 90 juniors and was quite successful. Timing this year is chosen so as to be during the high school badminton season and well before the Junior Nationals. For high school players this is a great opportunity to experience open tournament play and to play in more than just one event. For the more serious juniors it as a good chance to test themselves, meet partners, and otherwise help prepare for the nationals.
This tournament is open to all juniors. You do not need to be a California resident! Your school school or residence do not matter, and you are representing yourself, not your school or club.
Gym opens 9AM on Saturday. Play starts at 9:40. More details will be posted when scheduling is complete. Times for first round matches will be posted here and emailed to players. After the first round all times posted at the tournament will be official.
