This event is in partnership with West of Scotland Disability Sports, Disability Sport Glasgow, Glasgow Disability Badminton Club, Glasgow & North Strathclyde Badminton Group, Badminton Scotland and Scottish Disability Sport.
This is a singles only competition and cost per player is £3 (members of Badminton Scotland) and £5 (non-members) thanks to funding we have received from West of Scotland Disability Sport. If time allows doubles games will be organised.
Registration will open at 9.15am and the championships will begin at 10.00am sharp. The schedule and draw will depend on the number of entries and will be completed one week before the event. We aim to do a round robin format to ensure everyone gets multiple games before a knockout stage or final.
