Singles with a round robin format (each group-BS & GS-will play each other once). There will be

In the case of a tie, the following tie break criteria will be used:
-1st-head to head result
-3rd-relative point difference
If this does not break the tie then 1 game to 21 no setting will be used to determine an outcome.
The rules of Badminton BC and those of Badminton Canada are in effect – 10 minute default
rule applies and 3 minute warm up period.
Generally, coloured clothing is permitted. Exception: private clubs may have additional requirements i.e. all whites. Players will be held in accordance with Badminton Canada’s Competition Uniform Policy also adopted by Badminton BC.
Officials reserve the right to ask competitors to change inappropriate clothing. Shorts that extend below the knee are deemed inappropriate clothing. Final decision will be made by the Tournament Referee.

1. Players must advise the draw desk within 5 minutes of the end of their first match loss if they do not wish to play consolations.
2. Players are required to be ready to play at least 10 minutes before their scheduled match
3. Players are recommended to be at the tournament venue at least 30 minutes before their scheduled match. No additional warm up time will be allotted for players arriving late
Please be advised: In response to concerns raised by numerous players, coaches and parents over the past several seasons, Badminton BC has implemented a “No Show” fee starting with the 2018-2019 season. Essentially, any player who does not show up for a scheduled match time without informing the HOC (at least 1 hour prior to the scheduled match) will be fined $40 dollars. This policy is an effort to reinforce the values of courtesy, responsible behaviour, respect and sportsmanship as set out in the BBC Athlete Code of Conduct – a no show would be considered an infraction of this shared Code. Thank you in advance for your cooperation, communication and responsible participation.
