High School Participation

Since 1975, the Hamilton & District Badminton Association has enhanced the badminton experience for the students in our area. Our four- level draw gives the students the opportunity to initially play against some higher skilled players – yet by the third match – they end up in a division that best reflects their skill level.

Our High School Participation Trophy is our way of saying ‘thanks’ to a school that accumulates the most points in our tournament. The scoring table (see below) awards points based on participation and how well a student performs in their first three matches only. With this system, the same number of matches applies to each high school competitor with additional points for their performance in those first three matches.  The wins and losses are recorded for the guaranteed three rounds of play.

All high school students in the Hamilton & District Badminton Association area are eligible. There is no limit to the number of entries from each school.
