Organization

Game Rules:

Phoenix Badminton Center assures all players to play with same level of players. This can be done by putting a level ID on the member’s database. Play with same level is very important for a good game and sweat.

Challenge Court:

A Challenge Court allows lower level players to play with a better player. Everyone will play their best because winners will stay. So players will improve faster.

For all levels of players.

Only 1 game per match.
21 points system recommended.
Winners can stay as long as they want.

Members may form their own group which composes of unlimited numbers of players. These players can be different sex and levels. They can have their own coach, uniform, signage and banners etc.

Groups can book on our courts and get a special rate.

Our clubs will have inside tournaments between these groups. Groups are different from Teams in which the latter one is representing the club. So there may have a lot of groups but only 3 teams – junior; Adult and senior.
