The Declan Casey Cup is a 6-Player Under-17 team competition, played in round robin format on one day. The format of play is two men’s doubles, two ladies doubles and two mixed doubles. The winning team will be awarded the Declan Casey Memorial Cup (in memory of long-time badminton & SWLBL player & supporter, Mr. Declan Casey – pictured above).
We usually start with a round robin stage followed by a main draw elimination and a plate draw elimination (subject to required min. entry numbers). The top two teams from each section will go through to semis in the main draw while the bottom two teams will go into semis in the plate draw, followed by finals in each. The first place team from Section 1 will play the second place team from Section 2 in the semis and so on.
The 2019 Declan Casey Perpetual Trophy will take place later in the season than usual on Sunday 5th May 2019, to accommodate what is a very busy juvenile calendar in February/March/April. For more information about 2019 competition rules & regulations, click here.
