  • Here is a first look at the Voltaire Design Badminton Grassroots Championships course for the cross-country phase of the 2022 BE90 competition, which will be held on Tuesday 3 and Wednesday 4 May.

    The course is designed by James Willis.



    The fences will obviously be flagged and numbered before the competition and dressed with flowers, extra brush and other decorations.
