Baltimore Badminton Charity Open Banner

This is a fun badminton tournament to aid of the victims and their families and to help organizations that provide relief to those devastated by events such as tsunamis, earthquakes, hurricanes, house fires and other disasters. The scope of these disasters can be international, national and local.

We have chosen three funds run by the American Red Cross to receive all the net proceeds of this tournament. Those funds are the International Response Fund, the National Disaster Relief Fund and the Central Maryland Emergency Assistance Fund. Players can choose which fund they wish to support (for how much each fund received, see the Results pages on the left side).

The Charity Open has raised over $44,000 for the Red Cross!
