    Hello, Im from Oppland, Norway. Im not a member of any badminton club because it doesnt even exist one single club in oppland. But I play in my garden and in the school's gym with friends and family.

    I havent competed in any tournament because badminton is not particularily popular in Norway. I want to join the International Student Badminton Tournament (taking place in Tønsberg, Norway 11.-15. august), but Im not sure if I can, because the age requirement is 18, and Im only 17 this year :(

    Anyways, glad to be here!

    yes, welcome to the forum.
    i thought badminton was quite popular in all the scandinavian countries, though i must admit i don't know much about oppland.
    good luck finding a club, in any case.

    Badminton is very popular in denmark, but not at all in norway for some reason :p Im not sure about how popular it is in sweden, but I've never seen a single swedish badminton athlete compete in any international competition. :p

    There are past swedish winners of the all england, Eva Twedberg won the ladies singles in 68 and 71.
    quite a few swedish winners in the mixed doubles as well in the 80s.

    no norweigians though i'm afraid.
