2014 Adult Nationals to be held in Boston
USA Badminton has awarded the right to host next year’s Adult Nationals competition to the Massachusetts Badminton Association (MassBad). It will be held at the Boston Badminton Club on the last weekend in March from the 28th to the 30th.
This will be the first Adult Nationals held on the east coast, or even east of the west coast, in a very long time. According to Beth Sopka, MassBad president, “I’ve been involved in badminton for 20 years and I am unaware of the tournament having been on the east coast any time in that period! With the growth we have been striving for and achieving, I think it is long overdue. We are hoping to attract both athletes and spectators who have not had the opportunity to enjoy this level of competition locally.”
Boston Badminton Club has 8 high quality courts in its 3-year old dedicated facility located in a western suburb of Boston, highly accessible by air and auto. MassBad has supported the growth of the sport in the Bay State for over 30 years, organizing competitions for players of all levels, supporting school and community programs with demonstrations and clinics and working with the Bay State Games and Massachusetts Senior Games organizations.
