Postponement of ACT Open, New Junior & Veterans event, ACTBA secretary required

The ACT Open, originally scheduled for 1-2 May at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS), has necessarily been postponed until 20-21 November (to replace the Brindabella Challenge Cup which has been cancelled for 2021), due to the AIS’s decision not to allow non-Olympic athletes on site ahead of the Olympics.

The ACTBA will be hosting two new events at the AIS in early June.  An ACT Junior Closed event will be held on 5 June and a Veterans competition on 6 June.  Details of both to be advised over the coming two or so weeks.

Unfortunately, Robynne Mah has needed to resign as ACTBA Secretary so a vacancy exists on the ACTBA Executive Committee.  While it is a volunteer position it is not onerous and would suit a young ACT badminton player wanting to give something back to the ACT badminton community (it would also look good on your CV as well).  No experience necessary, just a lot of enthusiasm.  Please contact ACTBA President Olaf Schuermann (Ph: 0400472711) for further information.  The ACTBA would like to thank Robynne for taking on the Secretary’s role over the past three years.
