To avoid clashes in events, Badminton Canterbury sets their calendar after Badminton NZ have published theirs, and Mainland (South Island associations) has set theirs. The Canterbury calendar is usually set in December for the following year, and the dates will be updated on here. Most of the tournaments are held approximately at the same time each year, so this should be used as a guideline of events for the following year. You can also view the Badminton NZ calendar of events. For details on other Mainland events, you will need to view the relevant associations website: Southland, Otago, West Coast
