There are a whole host of different competitions and formats that you can play in, each suited to a variety of players – whether you’re looking to compete on a local, county, regional or even national level. 

If you’re new to badminton competitions, returning after a long stretch away from the game or just fancy playing matches at your local venue, then National Badminton Competitions could be the best option for you.

You can also compete in various competitions at your local club, coaching programme or venue, such as box leagues, match plays, club nights, tournaments, etc. Just chat with your coach or us to find out what competitions offer.

Badminton England events are the next stage of competing, offering players graded circuit events to compete at the right level. They have three levels; Bronze, Silver and Gold. You can find a competition by visiting the Badminton England website

If you want to learn more about the wide range of competitions, please speak with your coach or get in touch.

Start out with a National Badminton event.

If you want to take your first steps into a competition, we recommend starting with a National Badminton event. These events are aimed at beginner/intermediate players looking to take their first steps into competing. They are a good way to take part in a competition, but in a fun and less competitive environment, as results are not recorded. But don’t sweat; winners/runners-up still receive kudos with medals!

We offer the following recreational competition events for juniors and adults:

  1. Super Single Events – singles-based round-robin events
  2. Super Double Events – doubles-based round-robin events; register as a pair or on your own, and we’ll match you up.

You can enter an upcoming event by visiting our bookings page
