Badminton at the 2015 Pan American Games – Qualification

Qualification systemEdit

A total of 88 athletes (44 men and 44 women) will qualify to compete at the games. A nation may enter a maximum of four athletes per gender. As host nation, Canada automatically qualifies a full team of eights athletes. All other athletes will qualify through the team world rankings as of February 26, 2015. The top ranked athlete/pair from each country in each event will have their points added together to get a country's total. The top three ranked will qualify eight athletes, the next four countries will qualify six each (three per gender) and the next four after that will qualify four each (two per gender). All other nations will qualify two athletes each (one per gender). Unranked nations may also request for quotas. If the entry total is more than 88 athletes, the continental federation will restrict team quotas to bring the total down to 88. If the total entry is less than 88, starting at the team ranked fourth will be given extra quotas (with a maximum of four per team).[1]
