Einladung zum Badmintonturnier in Gent (Belgien)


We are proud and excited to welcome you back in Gent, Belgium for the Auricula Open 2016. During the weekend of the 18th-19th November, Gent will welcome again athletes from around Europe to join Auricula’s Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender International badminton tournament.

 As per last year’s tournament, we are using a brand new sports hall with 19 (nineteen!!!) courts! Therefore we will be able to host around 180 participants. Plus in the same building there’s a subtropical swimming pool and a wellness centre for post competition entertainment.

We will be offering men’s and ladies’ doubles badminton in skill levels A, B+, B-, C+ and C- (only the A players will play with feather shuttles). Mixed teams are also most welcome, and can join in the men’s competition. Plus for those without a playing partner, blind dates can be arranged.

This year the dinner&party on the Saturday night will be again in the heart of the historic city, but at a new location. The dinner starts with a reception with nibbles, followed by an excellent international buffet with selected drinks included, and a dessert buffet served with coffee/tea. We will also provide enough choice for our vegetarian friends. The party (with DJ Toon) is free for all registered participants. So even if you’re not having dinner with us you’re most welcome to drink, dance and flirt. So note down the dates for your diaries, and we hope to see you again or for the first time, at our most friendly of badminton tournaments in the heart of East Flanders.

Tournament program:
 · Friday 18th November – 07:00 > 11:00 PM: Drinks&Mingling @ Casa Rosa. A cosy and chilled gathering in the heart of the historic city, allowing you to meet the other participants over a drink. We offer a free welcome drink to each participant!
· Saturday 19th November – 8:30 AM > 6:00 PM: Registration + Tournament @ Sports hall S&R Rozebroeken. Let the GA(Y)MES begin and explore that inner competitive beast!
 · Saturday 19th November – 7:00 PM > 4:00 AM: Dinner&Party @ Salons Carlos Quinto. Stuff yourself and dance your tits off!

Registration is open from 24th September and will be closed on 4th November 2016 (or when full). The link to the Auricula Open 2016 Registration Form will be placed on our website and sent by mail on Saturday 24th September.
Send a mail to auriculaopen@gmail.com, if you want to be put onto our mailing list. For more information, visit our website Auricula Open 2016.

We are looking forward to meeting you all, this autumn in Gent!
