Rankings and gradings

National rankings is a measure of the where you stand in overall order of merit from tournaments in the last 12 months. National ranking points are awarded to players competing in circuit tournaments, english national championships and sanctioned international tournaments.

Find your national ranking

National Grading has been introduced for players of all ages and abilities to identify their individual playing standards – and then find sanctioned tournament circuits that meet their on court levels.

Find your current grading

Player grade indicates the players known level of play based in groups of similar standard. Players are awarded a grade when they enter one of Badmitotn England’s tournaments and helps to signpost players to the correct level of tournament, and is also used to restrict tournaments to players of the right level.
