Badminton Scotland Court Officials: Newsletter

It’s been a busy few months for our Badminton Scotland Court Officials (BSCO) who have been out and about at many events, including the Nantes International Challenge 2022, The 4 Nations Para Badminton International and Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

The latest BSCO newsletter features stories and experiences from our line judges which is a great insight for those already involved or looking to go on our line judging course.

You can view the BSCO newsletter in full here.

Congratulations new line judges

A huge well done to those who have recently completed their line judging course. We have had plenty of positive feedback on the course with one member saying:

“It was a great pleasure having this line judge training course with you and your excellent team. I really enjoyed it as I have another perspective of badminton sport apart from being a player or audience. A bit nervous but more exciting when sitting along the lines, judging the landed shuttle and signalling to the umpire. I have got great help and support from the team and feel honoured to become one of you one day. Thank you again for organizing this event.”

Upcoming events and training

The next line judge course will be held on 12th November at Sir Craig Reedie. If you’d like to train as a Line Judge please contact Marisa Baird, Line Judge Coordinator (email: for information on future courses and events.
