Badminton Australia and representatives of Australia’s State and Territory Badminton organisations met earlier today to discuss the JUNE BEVAN TEAM EVENT & AUSTRALASIAN U/17 CHAMPIONSHIPS scheduled to be held in Perth, Western Australia from the 11th-18th April 2020 and the CP MADDERN TEAM EVENT & AUSTRALIAN U/19 NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS scheduled to be held in Geelong, Victoria from the 4th July to 11th July, 2020.
With consideration of the announcement by the Federal and State/Territory Governments relating to coronavirus and the importance of protecting the health and safety of the badminton community it was agreed to postpone both events with a view to holding the events later in the year possibly in September/October 2020.
Due to the unprecedented nature of this years national competitions Badminton Australia, together with the State and Territory badminton organisations, will meet again in late June 2020 to discuss championships arrangements, locations and the VAL NESBITT TEAM EVENT & AUSTRALIAN U/15 NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS scheduled to be held in Adelaide, South Australia from 27th September to 3rd October, 2020.
Thank you for everyone’s patience and support whilst we have undergone this process.
Jamie Parsons, Chief Executive Officer, Badminton Australia
