2022 City of Hobart Badminton Championships

The 2022 City of Hobart is running on the 13th and 14th August at the STBA, 101 Cascade Road, Hobart. Entries are now open and close on 7th August 2022 at 11:59PM, which is the same time as the Withdrawal Deadline.

We are excited to offer the biggest prizepool of the year, with over $5,000 on offer across all events*! Read further for a breakdown of the prizes on offer.

*In events where there are less than 4 entries, a revised prize structure may apply.

What events are there?

  • Singles

  • Doubles

  • Mixed Doubles

The above disciplines will be available across the following grades

  • Open

  • A Reserve Grade

  • B Grade

  • C Grade

  • D Grade

  • Social (E Grade & below)

  • U13

  • U15

  • U17

  • U19

Dependant on entries, events may be combined or cancelled. In these situations, we will advised you in advance and you can decide whether to enter the new combined event, or if you would prefer a refund.

The following is the accepted maximum number of events that one player can enter:

  • You can enter a maximum of 5 events.

  • Within their 5 events maximum, a player can only play 1 discipline (being singles, doubles and mixed) across a maximum of 2 different grades.

  • EXAMPLE 1 – acceptable entry: Doubles events in A & B grades, singles events in Open & A grades, and 1 mixed event in B grade COULD represent their 5 event maximum

  • EXAMPLE 2 – unacceptable entry: Doubles events across OPEN, A & B grades (3 grades in total), a mixed event in A grade and a singles event in B grade COULD NOT represent their 5 maximum events because doubles across 3 grades exceeds the 2 maximum grades in a specific discipline.

Please be aware that playing a discipline (i.e. singles) across multiple grades may result in you receiving little-to-no rest in between your games across those grades. You must also be aware that players must be ready to play when called on and any absent players will be forfeited – this needs to be done so that all players can take the court at appropriate times so there is no delay to others and the event.
