In 2016 Gay Badminton Amsterdam will again organize the International Gay & Lesbian Easter Badminton Tournament. The tournament will take place from the 25th till the 28th of March 2016.
The tournament is held once every two years and was a great success in 2014, with almost 220 players from all over Europe, and even from countries such as Canada and Japan. The Amsterdam television channel AT5 has a news item about the 2014 tournament on its website: tinyurl.com/AT5GBA. The organizers hope the 2016 event will be just as successful.
Who likes to take part, can register online at gay-badminton-amsterdam.nl. Registration starts on December 1, 2015, and from that day all information about the tournament can be found on the website. You can also take part if you’re not gay or lesbian. Mutual respect is the key phrase here.
Those living in the Amsterdam area can of course join the club. The playing season runs from September till June. Playing times are on Sundays 4:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and on Wednesdays 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Those interested can apply for GBA membership on the website, or just drop by at Sporthal De Pijp in Amsterdam on a Sunday afternoon.
