Tournament Description

Those who have been to this tournament know that it is very popular because it is played in a good venue, they offer a great dinner Saturday night and plenty of prizes on Sunday.  The atmosphere is very friendly and everybody ends up getting lots of very meaningful games in Brandon!

Supper is at  Pizza Place, Thunderbird Bowl, South of the Shoppers Mall on 18th St. Tickets for non-playing guests can be purchased at the restaurant for $15 + tax.

The Yonex Westman Open is still being organized by the Brandon Badminton Club so you can expect the same hospitality and good times that you are used to!  Only now you get the benefit of the tournament being sanctioned by MBA which means your tournament results will contribute to Provincial Player Rankings and there will be a Certified Provincial Referee to assist with tournament flow and address any tournament regulations needs.

This tournament is a 0.5 tier tournament on the Badminton Manitoba Tournament Ranking Chart, which makes it on par with the B&C Championships in terms of athlete ranking points.
