Badminton team event seeding and draw completed
The seeding and draw have been completed for the badminton team event.
The seeding was performed by the Badminton Technical Committee which was elected at the previous NatWest Island Games and includes representatives from several islands. Seeding took into account both the results of islands in previous Games and the individual rankings of the players selected to play in Jersey 2015.
Using this system, the first four islands were seeded and placed into four groups. The other islands were then seeded 5 to 13, and banded 5 to 8 and 9 to 12. One team from each ‘band’ was then drawn into each group. The thirteenth seed was placed into the group with the fourth seed.
The draw was performed by the Secretary of the Technical Committee, along with the Tournament Scheduler (who is independent from all islands). The results are:
