Further selection information 

Please note the following with regards the selection which was unanimously agreed to be followed by all those on the Selection Panel;

Through the development of the eligibility Summary and Results Matrix for the purposes of the Selection meeting (following the U15 Gold on 12-13 January) which provided details on players that had met the published criteria, it was evident that there were insufficient numbers of players who had met the published criteria to form the minimum regulatory Team entry size (minimum 4 boys and 4 girls).

With this being the case, it was therefore proposed and agreed that following selection of players against the published criteria, the Panel would introduce the following additional criteria under 4.1 and 4.2. This additional criteria looked at results achieved one level below the criteria published and were considered in priority order from 4.1 through to 4.2. This translates as the following;

Original Published Criteria 4.1 and 4.2 Additional Criteria considered to fulfil regulatory Team size
4.1.1 Medal performances at the following identified Badminton Europe U15 Junior Circuit tournaments; U15 Swedish Youth Games, U15 Finnish Youth & U15 Estonian Youth; Quarter final performances at the following identified Badminton Europe U15 Junior Circuit tournaments; U15 Swedish Youth Games, U15 Finnish Youth & U15 Estonian Youth;

4.1.2 Medal performances at 2018 U15 Glasgow Youth International;

Quarter Final performances at 2018 U15 Glasgow Youth International;
4.1.3 Medal performances at 2018 U15 Junior Quadrangular; Quarter finals at 2018 U15 Junior Quadrangular;
4.1.4 Finals at Badminton England identified Badminton Europe U15 International Junior Circuit tournaments (as listed on the BE website page here)*; Medals at Badminton England identified Badminton Europe U15 International Junior Circuit tournaments (as listed on the BE website page here)*;
4.2.1 Finals at 2018 U15 National Championships; Medals at 2018 U15 National Championships;
4.2.2 Medals at Badminton England identified Badminton Europe U15 International Junior Circuit tournaments (as listed on the BE website page here)*; Quarter finals at Badminton England identified Badminton Europe U15 International Junior Circuit tournaments (as listed on the BE website page here)*;
4.2.3 Finals at domestic U15 Gold Star Singles Events / Wins at U15 Gold Doubles Events Medals at domestic U15 Gold Star Singles Events / Finals at U15 Gold Doubles Events

Following analysis of the additional criteria as noted above, with ‘Medals at domestic Gold Star Singles Events / Finals at U15 Gold Doubles Events being the only criteria which subsequently brought additional players into consideration, the Panel then considered each of these players in turn for Selection for the Team Event. During consideration by the Panel and taking note of those players that had already been selected, selection was focused around which disciplines we required additional players for in order to achieve the Policy and Performance Objectives.

N.B Other criteria was considered to be utilised to select further players i.e. U13 Nationals, U13 International results. However it was felt that the Proposal utilised by the Selection Panel provided fairness to all players regards the published Policy and the applicable tournaments related to Selection for the Event.
