Let the shuttles fly

SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - It's a big weekend of badminton in Yellowknife as two tournaments will be happening at the St. Patrick and Weledeh Gymnasiums.
The Yellowknife Junior and Senior Badminton Championships are set to kick off today and will features school teams battling it out for the overall banners up for grabs.
The rules for both tournaments are the same and are simple - they will feature singles and doubles for both boys and girls and mixed doubles, all held in a double-knockout format. Each match won is worth a set number of points and the school which racks up the highest total wins. There are also individual medals up for grabs in each category.

Meeting at the plate

SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - NWT Softball is officially wrapping up its 2015 season with its annual general meeting on Sunday at the Sport North boardroom.

The meeting is open to all members of the organization.
