Referees Pathway

Striving to be the best

There are four grades of referee to work to and achieve.

You will be appointed at 'Assitant' grade when you first join the register.

Regional and National Grades are appointed by BADMINTON England based on experience.

International Grade is appointed by Badminton Europe and Badminton World Federation.
