National School Championships

Bring your class to the court!

 Welcome to the home of the National Schools Championships

We have brought class to court for the past 10 years. In 2019/20, we engaged over 1000 schools up and down the country in competitive badminton at local, county and regional level.

Unfortunately this years 20/21 championship has been cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions. We hope to see you all back on court and playing next year.

Entries are now open for 2019/20. You can enter via an online system. To enter a school team(s) to play in the competition, you will need a named contact for all arrangements. Other than that, all you need to know is the number of teams you intend to enter.

The entry deadline is Friday 4th October. Following this date, no entries will be accepted.
