Tournament Sanction

Sanctioning your Tournament

We recommend all tournament organisers seek sanction for their tournaments. Sanction will ensure that you are not clashing with other local tournaments, and that you and your participants have the appropriate liability insurance cover.

County Sanction: Your first point of call is to contact your County Badminton Association, who will check that there are no other local tournaments which will affect your entry.

Badminton England Sanction: If the tournament is likely to attract players from beyond your county then you need sanction from Badminton England.

Badminton England co-ordinates a series of national tournament circuits for members where ranking and grading points can be earned. The circuits are run at three grades (Gold, Silver, Bronze) for Juniors, Seniors and Masters players.

You can apply to run a circuit tournament by completing the electronic sanction form below. Sanction is open from March to June for the forthcoming season starting in August. Terms and conditions for each circuit can be downloaded below.
