Badminton Officials Training

posted 1 Mar 2017, 15:31 by SABC Badminton
A cool free program from the EDBA and Badminton Alberta:


As a regular and active badminton player, do you know when your opponent’s flick serve is legal and when it isn’t? If your opponent’s racquet touches the net in a rally, do you automatically win the point every time? You are so sure your shot landed in but your opponent called it out, who gets the final say? If you’re not sure about the answers to the above or have a host of other badminton rules related questions, maybe you want to consider attending a badminton officials training clinic. If you are so inclined, please note the following email from Badminton Alberta (BA) about its “Badminton Officiating 101” course to be held at the Royal Glenora Club this weekend
