The Manitoba Junior Open is the first of two junior provincial championships in the year. "Open" refers to the tournament's policy on allowing players who are not permanent residents of Manitoba to attend. This tournament always attracts players from all over Manitoba, however sometimes players will come from Ontario and/or Saskatchewan to compete as well.
The tournament was named after Pal Chawla in 2011 following his retirement due to his illustrious career as the Head Badminton Pro at Winnipeg Winter Club for 40 years. Since then Pal Chawla has been inducted into the Badminton Canada Hall of Fame and can be seen around the Winter Club mingling with friends.
Refund Policy: Badminton Manitoba does not permit refunds of MBA Memberships or Tournament Registration Fees unless requests are accompanied by a medical note or immediate family crisis.
Players must make themselves available for the entirety of the event, and personal situations will not be taken into consideration for timing purposes.
