Registration for the P1.5 million Bingo Bonanza National Open badminton tournament is ongoing with organizers expecting the roster to swell as the event, slated on December 11 to 14, draws near.
Fee is pegged at P800 with the listup ending on November 28 at 5 p.m. The list of players will be posted on December 1 with the draw set on December 5.
The team managers, coaches and players meeting will be held December 9 at 2 p.m. at the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex Badminton Hall.
The cream of the country’s badminton crop, the leading players from the collegiate and corporate ranks and a slew of rising stars are expected to participate in the tournament sponsored by Bingo Bonanza in its continuing effort to help develop and promote the sport.
The upcoming blue-ribbon event actually serves as a comeback of sort for country’s premier amusement center, which used to sponsor big-time badminton tournaments since the early 2000s.
Titles to be disputed in the event are the men’s and ladies singles, the men’s and ladies doubles and the mixed doubles.
Ranking points will also be staked in the championship which also offers P120,000 to the winners in the men’s, women’s and mixed doubles categories, and P100,000 in men’s and women’s singles.
