Find Your Level

When filling out our sign-up form, the descriptions below can help you select the correct grade. Players will often find they fit somewhere in between two categories. If in doubt, assume the lower category.

We use this to pair you with other players, but it does not guarantee all your games will be at this level. Depending on the night, you may have some games of a higher or lower standard.

Top players in all aspects of the game with few weaknesses. Able to play all shots with a high level of consistency and very few unforced errors.

Badminton WA equivalent: Open, A Grade

Strong club players with many years of experience. Able to play the main shots well with high consistency.

Strengths include steep, powerful smashes and strong backhands. Deception, good footwork, and court awareness are often part of their repertoire.

These players have typically spent many hours on the badminton court and are potential addicts.

Badminton WA equivalent: A Reserve, B Grade

Sound club players with a competitive edge. Able to put up a good fight and return most shots.

These players have honed their skills over several years, but there is often room for improvement. Typically, smashes lack power, backhands are weak, and shots can be inconsistent and inaccurate.

These players typically look to improve their standards in a social but competitive setting.

Badminton WA equivalent: C Grade

Social players with typically more than a year’s worth of badminton under their belt. Able to consistently execute basic badminton shots and sustain rallies.

These players still are working on their control and power. They typically lack footwork and struggle to play backhand shots.

These players generally aren’t too concerned about winning or losing but enjoying themselves socially or getting some exercise.

Badminton WA equivalent: D Grade

Recreational players who have not played in a club environment.

The ability to sustain a rally and more than 30 hours of badminton practice is needed before you sign up.

If you haven’t played in a while, we recommend you brush up on your skills before attending to ensure you get the most out of your time at the club.

If you want to learn badminton or have less than 30 hours of court time, the club will not be suitable due to the way we run the club.

After a quick warm-up, we go straight into playing scheduled games. There is very little time to practise your shots and learn the rules.

We recommend you start playing with friends in the backyard or attend some badminton classes to learn the basics.
