Junior Tournaments

Tournaments are a great way to play competitive badminton in every discipline. As well as being a great way to motivate players to train hard to gain greater success, they are also a great way of meeting new people and seeing new places. Tournament results are also used as part of the process, when selecting players for County and National Teams.

Because of their importance in a player’s development, NEWBA encourages and recommends, that all players wishing to reach their maximum potential, competes in tournaments throughout the season.

NEWBA, Badminton Wales and Badminton England hold a number of tournaments throughout the season to give players the opportunity to compete at a level that suits their ability.
