TIMES (AND NAMES) ARE A-CHANGING!
Action has recently been taken by the USAB Senior Advisory Group, chaired by Mary Ann Bowles and Andrea Weiss, to update the name of the USA Badminton Senior National Championships to the USAB Master National Championships. The In conjunction with that action and with invaluable input from USA Badminton’s Peggy Savosik, the USAB Senior Advisory Group has been renamed the USAB Master Advisory Group.
Badminton Canada long ago established their Canadian Masters tournament, and the Badminton World Federation biannually hosts the BWF World Masters Games. Master players in the world of badminton are those players who have reached the age of 35 and up.
It would be the suggestion of the USAB Master Advisory Group that the other U.S. master age sanctioned tournaments including the Graham/Toms U.S. Senior International Badminton Championships, the Yonex OCBC Senior International, and the Manhattan Beach Badminton Club Senior Fall Open Tournament also consider the name change from Senior to Master.
