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.
