Age Group Eligibility

In 2016 the BWF and Badminton Europe announced a change in junior age group eligibility and the decision was made that all Badminton Wales Junior Events would also change their eligibility.

The Badminton Wales Seasons run from the 1st July - 30th June.
For example; as of 1st July 2017 we will be in the 2017-18 season.

The age group changes, which were introduced last season, still apply.

A player's age group is determined by their age on the 31st of December in the concluding year of any given season.
For example; if a player is 14 in 2017 but will turn 15 at any point in 2018 their age group from the 1st July 2017 - 30th June 2018 is U17. 

Below is a table which helps explain the Junior Age Group eligibility more clearly.
