Volunteering

The National Capital Badminton Team Tournament requires a lot of support to run smoothly.  There are teams for organizing the tournament, teams of volunteers to run the operations of the tournament, teams of volunteer officials for enforcing rules, and contractors for the professional jobs larger than a volunteer job.  Everyone gets involved for different reasons.  High School students can collect community hours for volunteering.  Tournament organizers can collect valuable management skills in planning, marketing, financial budgets, financial statements, insurance, online collaboration tools, sales, operations, and writing contracts.  Contractors can increase their portfolio size.
