The next edition of the World Masters Games (WMG) will be hosted in Torino, Italy in 2013 (linked here) – 2 – 11 August 2013.
Badminton has been an important part of the sports programme for previous WMGs. In cities like Edmonton, Canada in 2005 and Sydney, Australia in 2009, very large numbers of badminton players took part in this age group participation event. However, Badminton is not yet on the programme of sports for Torino 2013 – but if there is enough interest, this can change. Please see the Torino WMG website – and in particular the Sports / Venues page (linked here).
The key message is:
Badminton – This sport has not yet been included in the Sports Program. Would you be interested in participating? You can make this possible showing your interest before the 14th July. Show us your interest in it; write the number of participants who would like to register, accommodation needs and any further detail to email@example.com After 14th BWF will let you know if the sport was included!
It is important that each Member Association distributes this information to Senior / Masters players and if there are individuals or teams who are planning to register and participate, we strongly recommend that you / they write to the organisers providing details of the number of players and the strength of interest.
The deadline for this expression of interest is 14 July.
