Tournament Description:


The Manitoba Junior Open is the first of two junior provincial championships in the year. "Open" refers to the tournament's policy on allowing players who are not permanent residents of Manitoba to attend. This tournament always attracts players from all over Manitoba, however sometimes players will come from Ontario and/or Saskatchewan to compete as well.


The tournament was named after Pal Chawla in 2011 following his retirement due to his illustrious career as the Head Badminton Pro at Winnipeg Winter Club for 40 years. Since then Pal Chawla has been inducted into the Badminton Canada Hall of Fame and can be seen around the Winter Club mingling with friends.





Refund Policy: Badminton Manitoba does not permit refunds of MBA Memberships or Tournament Registration Fees unless requests are accompanied by a medical note or immediate family crisis.


Availability: Participants must be available to play during the entirety of the events that they are registered for. MBA will not accept special requests for time, for any reason.


Due to the speed of play being unpredictable, participants are asked to be ready a minimum of 30 minutes prior to their posted match. It is ultimately the player's responsibilityto be present for the start of their match.


The tournament will enforce a strict 10-minute disqualification rule and 2-minute warm-up rule.


Clothing: Participants must have an indoor change of clothing and non-marking athletic shoes


Equipment: Participants must bring their own racquets


Volunteers: If you would like to volunteer at the draw desk, please contact Sean Chawla at
