Badminton Leagues

Badminton Leagues (Decade / Era Overview) 

Following reorganisation of the Badminton Leagues in 2010, a National Grading System was brought in for Players and Teams, with Leagues ranked 1-7 or A-G Nationally, thus Grade E, for example, might be the top Level in a County, but would be considered Level 5 Nationally.

The Badminton Premier League is Grade 0, corresponding to Grade 2 Internationally, and is run by Leinster Badminton rather than Dublin & District Leagues & Cups (DDLC), which runs Leagues Grade 1-9 in Dublin.
