As part of Badminton BC's initiative to professionalize our sport, new standards for officiating have been put in place.  The officials uniform and equipment standards for tournaments are described below:


Uniform:

  • Blue polo top
  • Black pants (not jeans or sweat pants)
  • Black shoes with black socks 

Equipment:

  • Clipboard
  • Pen
  • wristwatch with timer function
  • Coin
  • Red & yellow warning cards

Umpires may not:

  • carry a cell phone onto the court

Officials not meeting the standards will not be allowed on court.  Continuous infractions will may result in a loss in accreditation.

Please note, you do not have to purchase the Badminton BC equipment. We are offering this package in support of your officiating efforts.  If you have any of the above items you may use them to officiate.  

The only requirement is that your blue polo shirt must have the Badminton BC logo embroidered along with the title "Official" beneath it.  If you need the logo for tailoring purposes please email Alvin.
