Thu 7 Aug 2014 In: New Zealand Daily News View at Wayback

Auckland will host a trans-Tasman gay badminton tournament in November. It comes after nearly 20 members of the Auckland Gay Badminton Group went to Melbourne to play in the inaugural trans-Tasman tournament last year, taking on competitors from Melbourne and Sydney. “It was a great success, there was even some badminton played,” the team says. Now they have taken up the challenge to play hosts themselves, and have set 8 November as the date. The tournament will be doubles only, covering three grades – advanced, intermediate and social. “Social players welcome, this will be fun,” the Auckland Gay Badminton Group says. Entry is open to all here The organisation is also looking for sponsorship for team t-shirts, medals, lunch on competition day, and for a social event in the evening “so any help would be greatly appreciated.” Get in touch at
