Badminton at EuroGames 2020

 

Levels and disciplines

Badminton is played in levels C-, C+, B-, B+ and A.

For Singles we are offering the competitions Women & Men and for Doubles Women, Men & Mixed.”

You can participate for one single competition and / or one double competition.

Our plan is to give you at least 3 sets for Singles and 5 sets for Doubles.

If you like to participate Doubles please make sure to already have a double partner. For the registration it is necessary to know the first name, last name and the email address of your double partner (no “blind dates”).

In order to guarantee a fair tournament, please ensure your level classification fairly and correctly reflects your ability. The following criteria have been set for classification for the EuroGames 2020:

  1. The team's level will be determined solely on the basis of the better player's level classification and results at LGBT tournaments (singles and doubles) over the last three years. Involvement in mixed and senator competitions will not be considered. It is the responsibility of each player/team to ensure that their classification is correct. Incorrect classification can jeopardize the participation.
  2. Gold medal (first place) winners at tournaments with 200 participants or more like EuroGames, Gay Games etc. over the last three years are obliged to play in a classification level higher.
  3. The award of five medals (first to third places) at any LGBT tournaments over the last three years shall likewise result in a higher level classification.

The organisation team, if appropriate, reserves the right to move a participant from one competition to another and to merge competitions in case of too low participants per competition. In that case you will be informed via email.
