 HOLD ON TO YOUR SHUTTLECOCKS.

This is MADMINTON! Kansas City’s third annual badminton tournament with a mad twist. Dress up, dress down, dress weird, Or don’t dress  at all! Just join in for some good clean fun for a great cause on October 7, 2017 at the Soccer Lot.

BRING YOUR 'C' GAME.

Whether your badminton skills are a lowly 1 or an epic 10 — doesn't matter. Madminton is all about having fun and supporting a winning cause, not your losing ego. Come October 7th, hardship is going to get served!

GET DOWN WITH YOUR BAD SELF.

Indulge in 2-on-2-tournament play with prizes, a costume competition, great food and drinks and social shenanigans everyone can enjoy. We welcome teams of all ages and ability levels.

Saturday, October 7, 2017 from 9 am until 7 pm at the Soccer Lot located at 2525 Jefferson Street in Kansas City, Missouri


Format is badminton doubles tournament play (costumes optional but highly encouraged).

The Soccer Lot (near the Crossroads, just west of the IRS building) 2525 Jefferson Street, Kansas City, Missouri 64108

This tournament may just be for funzies, but the prizes are the real deal. Check out how you can win some legit awards:


1st place – You know, actually winning the tournament (and prizes)

Best costume – Losing in style is still winning in our book

Best team name – Have fun. Just try to keep it rated PG-13.

Last place – Being the best at being the worst; that’s something, right?

We made this one as simple as possible. All badminton tournament equipment will be provided, but personal rackets are welcome. Just bring yourself, your partner, and the craziest, most ridiculous half-thought-out costume you can conjure up. Oh, and your party pants! It’s imperative you don't forget to bring those bash britches. Generous local eateries will provide light provisions in the morning and lunch.

Checkout previous tournaments!!

FIGHT BAD WITH MAD.

 

There are no losers in Madminton because each team is serving a winning cause. Every participant is helping local families receive life’s most basic, everyday necessities. Just remember, serve the needy BUT smash the competition.

WHAT’S WITH ALL THE RACKET?
