Term 3 – Shuttle Time Youth League

Term 3 Shuttle Time Youth League

This will be the inaugural running of a badminton youth league designed to provide additional badminton for secondary school students during the winter and offers the chance to play SINGLES each week!

This is new style of competition with teams of 8-10 players (4-5 boys & 4-5 girls). Schools may enter entire teams, or a bulk of players, who we can then put into teams. Therefore teams will be made of a players from a variety of schools.

The winning School will be determined by coefficient of points across the entire competition. This will run alongside the normal team-based competition. There will be points awarded to each match won by a player from a school. This will be adjusted based on proportion of players from each school. The winning school will therefore be the one with the most successful students!!

There will also be winner and runner-up teams, who will receive trophies and medals as usual.

It is open to all abilities from beginners to rep players and all are encouraged to enter and represent their school. This also provides a chance for players to play in a different format of competition, with friends from other schools, whilst still helping their own school try and win overall!

We provide shuttles and racquets for those who need them, and a presentation in the final week of the competition, including trophies, medals and spot prizes!
