There are opportunities for BJBA players in both local tournaments and leagues:
Berkshire Restricted Tournaments
Anyone who lives in Berkshire, goes to school in Berkshire or was born in
Berkshire is eligible to enter Berkshire restricted tournaments. The tournaments are organized by age group and gender- under 12s, under 14s and under 16s, according to BE age criteria and
usually take place in September. There are normally singles and doubles events, and sometimes mixed doubles too. The strongest children are normally seeded, and children play several
group matches, with the top one or two children in each group progressing to the knock out phase. Winners and runners up in each event receive a trophy. Results help the head
coach make Shires League selections.
This league is organized by clubs in Surrey, and last year we entered two
teams for the first time. Teams compete according to age group- under 10s, 12s, 14s, and 16s (according to school year, not Badminton England age groups, so, for example: under 10s means
anyone in Year 5 or below) and gender. We hope to enter more teams this year if we are able to recruit team managers to run teams. All BJBA players who meet the age group/gender
criteria for a team will be considered for matches. Team managers organize teams based on a list of players provided by BJBA. The matches are played from September to April, and
the number of matches a team plays can vary from four to ten, depending on the team.
All children who play at BJBA are eligible to enter ACDBL tournaments, if they
have played in an ACDBL league team. These tournaments are also organized by age group and gender, and within each age groups there are normally two groups, so stronger players play off
against each other, but players who are less experienced also have the chance to be successful in a less challenging group. Doubles tournaments take place over two weekends in the Autumn
term, and singles in the Spring term.
ACDBL Tournament dates:
Saturday 23rd November 2019 U10s (yr 5 and below), U14s (yr 9 and below) and
