World Badminton Day – 5 July

BWF will celebrate the very first World Badminton Day this 5 July 2022.

It was over 87 years ago, on 5 July 1934, that the International Badminton Federation (now BWF) was founded.

In recognition of this significant date, and to make this a day of celebration for badminton globally, World Badminton Day will be held annually on 5 July.

National Badminton Federations, clubs, communities, and badminton fans globally are encouraged to organise their own celebrations.

What is World Badminton Day?

World Badminton Day brings people and communities together to experience fun and inclusive badminton, through a variety of active, engaging, and innovative badminton events.  These events will take place globally over the same period of time.  While events may range in size, location, and focus, the common theme to celebrate and promote badminton will be shared by all.

Who can take part?

Everyone is encouraged to take part in World Badminton Day, either through attending a World Badminton Day event, or why not register and organise your own World Badminton Day event.

How to celebrate World Badminton Day?

World Badminton Day provides an opportunity to engage new and existing badminton participants.  Events may bring badminton and other themes together, including culture, music, food, art, other sports.  The list is endless, and the celebrations can be organised in any location!
