USAB New Junior Ranking Tournament FAQ


USA Badminton acknowledges the need for a better understanding of the new tournament structure for the 2017 / 2018 season. In order to achieve that we are pleased to provide a set of FAQs.


USAB reviewed the new junior tournament structure after receiving feedback from the Junior Advisory Group (JAG). Below are the key adjustments:


1.       Each region has the choice of hosting 1 Open Regional Championships (ORC), 1 Closed Regional Championships (CRC) or 2 ORCs


2.       Regional representation at USA Junior National will be based on the region’s highest ranked player/pair in an age group event


3.       A maximum of only 2 ORCs (Open Regional Championships) / CRCs (Closed Regional Championships) will be allowed for any given long weekend.
