The first Virtual Badminton Manager game has been launched by Badminton Europe.
Badminton Manager is a virtual manager game you can play on your smart
phone or Tablet where actual tournament results affect the participants’ virtual teams.
The Badminton Manager game starts on 22 June and ends 1 May 2016 - the last tournament being the 2016 European Championships in France.
It’s available for iOS and Android and is easy to join the game.
With an imaginary budget of €1,000,000 you have to buy a virtual badminton team consisting of two men’s singles players, two women’s singles players, two men’s doubles pairs, two women’s doubles pairs and two mixed doubles pairs.
The players/pairs which you can buy for your team are named after real players/pairs that are participating in international tournaments.
You also have to choose a bonus player/pair which will be earning extra points for your team.
The performances of your selected players/pairs are shown as an increase
in the respective player’s/pair’s value, and thereby your team’s value.
The intention of the game is to get a team with the highest possible value.
During the game you can make transfers/substitutions to your team and
thereby adjust it to fit with the coming tournaments being played.
Prizes will be won between rounds and for the overall winner. Just search for "Badminton Europe" on the App Store and Google Play to join the game free of charge before 21 June.
Make badminton essential to your summer. Play for fitness, fun or competition
