The Badminton England Para-Badminton circuit consists of tournaments for physically disabled players (categorised according to the nature of their impairment) and learning disabled players.

Players of any standard are welcome to enter Para-Badminton Circuit events but in order to participate in the Gold events, players must be classified.
