The Perth & District Badminton Association operates a league in which clubs from the local area compete. The league is split into two divisions. Each league team comprises six players, usually four gents and two ladies, although the same individuals need not necessarily play in each match. League matches comprise a mix of gents doubles, ladies doubles and mixed doubles.
The Club had four teams in the league in 2019/20: Glenearn A played in Division 1 while Glenearn B, Glenearn C and Glenearn D played in Division 2.

The Perth & District Badminton Association operates cup competitions in which league teams compete in a knock out competition. The cup competitions are handicapped meaning that each team should have an equal chance of winning the competition (that's the theory anyway!).
Glenearn C has reached the final of the 2020 Campus Trophy competition, which has yet to be played due to COVID-19. It is the only Glenearn team remaining in the 2020 cup competitions.

Usually once a year, the Perth & District Badminton Association holds a fun mixed doubles tournament. This takes place on a single night, is open to anyone to enter and the double pairings are drawn out of a hat. A good number of players from the Club have participated in this fun tournament in recent years.

Glenearn A has entered teams in the Midlands inter-club tournament in recent years and has involved players from other clubs such as Harris and Forgandenny in the team. Glenearn A has enjoyed the test of playing against high-quality opposition from across the Midlands area in that competition.

The Club itself runs tournaments for its members from time to time. These are usually fun, informal affairs that take place on a regular Club night. Our 2020 Club Championships were held on 2 March 2020.
Sadly, our Club President, John Grant, passed away in 2020. In his memory, the John Grant Memorial Cup will now be presented each year to the winners of our annual Club competition.

Several of our players participate in other tournaments. Over the past year, players have participated in badminton ladders in Dundee, Dunfermline and Crieff, and Badminton Scotland tournaments in Glasgow.
