AFFILIATION

RULES
The rules of Badminton Québec and the International Badminton Federation (IBF) will be used. Sport-specific anti-doping policies will apply.

ANTI-DOPING POLICY
The 1st World Outgames endorses a healthy and fair approach to sports training and competition. Sport events in the 1st World Outgames are sanctioned by provincial, national, and in some cases, international sports governing bodies. In order to adhere to the rules of these sporting federations and to guarantee that the Outgames are run in a fair and just manner, GLISA and the Outgames have adopted the policy as set by the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES), and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

Consequently, all athletes competing in the 1st World Outgames must adhere to GLISA’s position on drugs in sport and may be required to undergo drug-testing. We encourage all participants to become familiar with this policy.
 
POLICY ON TRANSITIONED AND TRANSGENDER ATHLETES

The objective of the 1st World Outgames in this regard is to provide an experience where all athletes are able to compete in a safe and welcoming environment, without discrimination of any kind. Our priority is to find the appropriate balance to ensure that no person, regardless of their birth gender, is disadvantaged in athletic competition and at the same time that no person participating in the Outgames experiences discrimination.

GLISA and the 1st World Outgames have collaborated so as to develop a policy that reflects this balance. We encourage all participants, especially those who have identified themselves as ‘transgender’ in the registration process, to become familiar with this policy.

COMPETITION FORMAT
The competition will be held in two parts. The preliminary round will be a round robin, where each athlete plays 3 sets of 15 points against other athletes in the same pool. The second and final round will use a single knock-out format played in best-of- 2-out-of-3 sets.

Three divisions will be offered in this competition: Singles, Doubles and Mixed Doubles. The winner in each game is the first to score 15 points in the Men’s and Mixed divisions and 11 points in the Women’s Singles events (15 points in Women’s Doubles; 15 points in Mixed Doubles).A participant can register in any or all of the three divisions.

Participants will select their own grade based on the following criteria:

  Grade Criteria
