Badminton

Hit and never quit

Rheinbow Sport Basel and Rainbow Sport Zurich are organising the badminton tournament for EuroGames Bern 2023. We will be offering a singles, doubles and mixed doubles tournament over the course of three full days:

  • Wednesday, July 26: singles
  • Thursday, July 27: mixed doubles
  • Friday, July 28: doubles

The tournament consists of two rounds. The first round will be played in groups, the second round is the knockout stage. The tournament will be offered for levels A, B+, B-, C+ and C-. Please indicate your classification accurately so that we can guarantee a fair tournament that correctly reflects everyone’s skill level. We play with shuttles with natural feathers.

We interpret the Badminton levels as follows:

  • A: International- and national-team level
  • B+: Competitive level
  • B-: Recreational with competition/tournament experience
  • C: Recreational without competition/tournament experience.

In the event of insufficient registrations for any given competition, we reserve the right to merge competitions or to move participants to another competition. We will inform you through email should this be the case.

If you want to participate in the doubles or mixed doubles tournament, please make sure that you already have a partner. To register it is necessary to know their first and last name and email address. It is not possible to register without a partner (no «blind dates»).
