Message from the organisers

Goslings London is proud to invite you to our forthcoming international tournament between 2-4th October 2020. As the leading LGBT+ badminton club in London we reflect the diversity and vibrancy of this city.

Goslings London takes great pride in organising international tournaments. This event will cater for all ability levels across singles, mixed doubles and male and female doubles competitions. The event will take place at a fantastic tournament venue – the very training venue that was built specifically for badminton athletes at the London 2012 Olympic Games! We also aim to provide hosted housing for those who would like this.

And in addition to this, we have organised a brilliant social programme which includes a fabulous tournament party in Central London. Combined with the opportunity to win one of our glitzy medals, we believe you will have an awesome time competing at our London International tournament!

London is one of the most visited cities in the world with lots of great landmarks, an array of visitor attractions and a very dynamic LGBT+ nightlife scene. 

Don’t hesitate to book now to be part of Goslings London Badminton International 2020! We look forward to welcoming you in October!

The London Tournament Committee

Fairness

In order to guarantee an exciting, entertaining und fair tournament, please ensure your level classification fairly and correctly reflects your ability. The following criteria have been set for classification in London:

  1. The team’s level will be determined solely on the basis of the better player’s level classification and results at LGBT tournaments (singles and doubles) over the last three years. Involvement in mixed and senator competitions will not be considered. It is the responsibility of each player/team to ensure that their classification is correct.
  2. Gold medal (first place) winners at tournaments in London or LGBT tournaments of a comparable size (200 participants or more, for example, Hamburg, Berlin, Eurogames, Gay Games) over the last three years are obliged to play in a classification level higher.
  3. The award of five medals (first to third places) at any LGBT tournaments over the last three years shall likewise result in a higher level classification.
