Some of the key changes to the Regulations this season are:

  • The Shuttle Finals will now be replaced with a Shuttle Plus which will be open to all Shuttle players across Wales.

  • Shuttle Series Tournament Organisers may choose to host U19 events.

  • The Shuttle Series eligibility has changed. All Development Group players born in 2003 or later may enter the series depending on their Badminton England Grading.

  • Junior players may now enter a maximum of 2 age groups per tournament.

  • There is now an option on the junior tournament entry forms for entrants to choose how / whether they wish to receive confirmation of their entry.

  • At the Tournament Organisers discretion, fees and penalties may apply for late entries and no shows.

  • Shuttle Series ranking places will be established by a capped number of the players best results in their regional tournaments combined with their Shuttle Plus result. 

  • Slight changes in ranking points for events which do not run due to a single entrant. 

  • Shuttle Series upgrading has changed and players can be upgraded during the season;
    Should a player win 2 tournaments in one season they will be automatically upgraded to the age group above. 
    Winners of the Shuttle Plus and the series rankings will be upgraded providing they are not already moving up an age group the following season. 

  • There will be a Senior Satellite Series Finals at the end of the season for the top 8 ranked players in each event. The date and venue have yet to be confirmed.
