Olympic Badminton Exhibition and Send-Off

RA Centre Badminton Club

July 22, 7:30pm Start

Come and support Olympic badminton athletes, Mike Beres and Andrew Dabeka, before they head off to Beijing to represent Ottawa and Canada at the 2008 Olympic Games. July 22 is the official send-off event for Mike and Andrew. Mike Beres has qualified for the Games with his mixed doubles partner Valerie Loker, while Andrew Dabeka has qualified in men's singles. Come and experience an exciting night of international-level badminton matches, featuring an interesting mix of our local players and some top foreign stars.

The qualification process for the Olympics for Mike and Andrew has been intense, to say the least. It has spanned the last year, and has included their participation in over 20 international tournaments each, taking place all over the World. Please come and take part as they depart for the last leg of their quest for Olympic glory! Your attendance will help offset some of the exorbitant costs of the pursuit of their dream; all proceeds will go directly to support Mike and Andrew.

As the RA Centre and the Ottawa District Badminton Association have been strong supporters of High Performance Badminton in our area, members of the RA or ANY ODBA affiliated club will receive a discount on their tickets (see details below).

We look forward to having you take part in the last leg of the road to Beijing!
