2014 MassBad League result

MASSBAD CROWNS THE CHAMPIONS OF THE TEAM DOUBLES LEAGUE FOR THE EIGHTH YEAR

The Massbad Team Doubles League was started in 2007 by the trio Beth Sopka, Tom Yang and Yvonne Chern.  Tom Yang led the tournament from 2007 to 2012.  The format that year consisted of home and away team matches.  Because of difficulty in getting courts for the tournament, this was replaced the following year with set dates using Maugus Club and the Chauncy Hill High School gym as the venue from 2008 to 2011 and using Boston Badminton from 2012 onwards.
 
The Massbad Team Doubles League started with just Division B and eight teams in 2007.  It has continued to grow over the years and today there are 4 Divisions (A, B, C, D) with 24 teams and over 240 participants.  The team format has fostered camaraderie in the various Clubs in MA and drawn in many players to competitive badminton at all levels.
