Tournament Description

The Yonex Herb Richard Manitoba Open is one of Manitoba's longest standing tournaments, and has been renamed after Herb Richard who was a long-time badminton professional at both the Winnipeg Canoe Club and the Wildewood Club. 

The "A" event is 1 of only 2 Premier Level Provincial Tournaments in Manitoba, which makes it a 1.0 ranking event.  The "C" event is held at the very same time but is a 0.25 ranking event and therefore this tournament can accommodate all levels of play!

There is a lunch planned for Saturday, as well as a tournament souvenir and prizes for final day winners
