Badminton Canada Announces 2021-22 Tournament Calendar
July 23, 2021
Tournamnet season set to resume in September 2021!
Badminton Canada is pleased to announce the calendar of events for the 2021-22 national competition season. With no events since March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic; Badminton Canada is thrilled to once again host events for our national badminton community!
The Yonex Elite and Junior Elite Series showcase some of the best talent our country has to offer, as clubs come together to compete on a national stage a few times a year. With tournaments drawing up to 200 competitors for each YONEX (Junior) Elite Series, and culminating to nearly 400 entries for the annual National and Junior National Championships; there is much pride to be won at each of these tournaments. Not only do these events serve as a great opportunity for athletes to compete against some of the nation’s best, but they also serve an important purpose in qualifying to represent Canada on the international stage.
“These national level events hold great value for our athletes” said Mike Luck, Sport Operations Manager, “competing at these events has a direct correlation with selection criteria for multiple international events, like Pan Am Junior Championships and World Junior Championships qualification criteria. We understand our Junior National circuit and Junior National Team programming has taken a step back this past year, but we hope to return quickly to servicing our top athletes and greater Canadian badminton community.”
“Overall, the 2021-22 season looks promising, there are many events in great cities that will serve our badminton communities across Canada” said Janice Dawson, Sport Programs Officer. “We are looking forward to working with our P/TSO’s and our host clubs in continuing provide the best and safest experience for our athletes.
Although Badminton Canada is extremely excited for the 2021-22 season, we understand our domestic competition season would not be possible without our devoted sport partners, sponsors and communities.
“Badminton Canada would like to recognize and thank YONEX Canada as our title sponsor. Their continued support for our domestic events and programs has been greatly appreciated these past years” said Joe Morissette, Executive Director, “We look forward to working with them in the upcoming 2021-22 season.”
“Additionally, we would like to thank all the provincial organizations and clubs that helped host many Badminton Canada events” continued Joe Morissette, “these events would not be possible without the provincial and regional support from many organizing committees, club organizers and volunteers.”
