We have developed a useful guide for tournament organisers to follow when organising junior events. Download the guide here.
Badminton Scotland have an extensive tournament calendar, and therefore we request that if you would like to organise a tournament, you apply to us to sanction that tournament. This means we can ensure the portfolio of tournaments and events in Scotland is put together in a structured and logical way, allowing us to avoid potential clashes which could harm the size of entry to your tournament. If you would like to request sanction for your tournament in Season 2016/17, please download the Tournament Sanction form, complete it and return it to Badminton Scotland.
If you would like to discuss possible dates for your tournament before applying for sanction, contact us:
