Rep Information

2021 Inter-Association Info

This season Badminton NZ have changed the format of the league system. There will now be National Divisions and Regional Divisions for each of the 3 regions in each age group (Northern, Central & Mainland). Placings for our teams in the new divisions were based on finishing positions in the 2019 season.

The age ranges of each age group have remained the same as previous years.

This season will also see the trialing of different team & tie formats for Senior & Masters age groups for the Central Regional Divisions.
