The innovative Barfoot & Thompson New Zealand Badminton League is set for a heady finish with the Grand Final on Saturday 1 May.

With the Grand Final being played at the Skycity Theatre in a casino in the heart of Auckland, the NZ Badminton League is sure to catch the attention of fans and laypeople alike.

A new scoring format (3×11) is being used, adding to the uniqueness of the event, and both players and fans have responded positively to its fast pace and increase in critical points.
