If you have enough players you may enter more than 1 team. If you are struggling to find enough players contact Roberta and we can look to integrate you with another team/players.

Teams must…

Consist of a minimum of 4 players (2 males & 2 females) and maximum 8 players (4 males & 4 females) in total per team entered.

Appoint a Team Captain who will be responsible for all players in the team for the duration of the event.


The cost per team is £50
All cheques should be made payable to ‘Isle of Man Badminton Association’


Scoring and Prizes

Each match consists of one game to 15 points.

A team DOES NOT have to win by 2 clear points, the first player/team to score 15 points wins.

Every point won in a match will be added to the Teams cumulative total. So remember… EVERY POINT COUNTS!


There is only one serve in doubles. At the beginning of the game and when the servers score is EVEN, the server serves from the RIGHT side of the court.

When the servers score is ODD, the server serves from the LEFT side of the court.

If the serving side wins a rally, the receiving side wins a point. The receiving side becomes the new serving side.

The players DO NOT change their respective service side until they win a point when their side is serving.

Depending on the number of teams entered we will look to offer a ‘round robin’ or ‘pools’ format to ensure each team has the opportunity to play as many matches as possible.

  • The IOM Badminton Association will source umpires for the event, however in the event this is not possible, players may be asked to score during their match.
  • There will be a first aid box available at the venue.
