2021/2022 provisional events calendar agreed by National Events Committee
Monday 31 May 2021
The National Events Committee have agreed a new three season calendar that will run from September 2021 - December 2024. The calendar includes a rotation of select national events to ensure that each branch will host at least one national event per season. The purpose of the three season calendar is to provide stability in events and ensure that tournament organisers can plan ahead with hall bookings and achieve their strategic goals.
As there has been no confirmation when the return to competition will commence for Badminton, all dates in 2021/2022 are fragile and subject to change. Badminton Ireland would advise parents and players not to book accommodation for these dates unless they can secure a cancellation policy.
2021/22 Season Update
- Badminton Ireland has confirmed the first International tournament being planned is Irish Open 2021. This therefore means the U19/U15 Irish Open will not take place until September 2022.
- Irish Nationals 2021 will take place on 2nd & 3rd October 2021 at the National Indoor Arena, consequently moving the Ulster Grade A to week 41.
- U15/U19 Nationals will be held in Ulster on the 6/7th November, whilst the U13/U17 Nationals will be held in Connacht on 11th/12th December
- Each Juvenile age group will have two events and a Nationals before the end of 2021 (Covid-19 pending)
Full 2021/22 season calendar
