World Badminton Day – 5 July / Member Association Awards / Office Closure

  1. World Badminton Day – 5 July 2022

Further to our Memo of 4 March 2022 (linked here), this is a friendly reminder that World Badminton Day is only 30 days away – on 5 July.

Thank you to all the Member Associations who have planned and registered their World Badminton Day activities to promote the sport nationally. See the promotional video – BWF TV.

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.

It’s time to get ready and get active for World Badminton Day!

  1. Member Association Awards

Further to the press release after the AGM 2022 which also announced the winners of the four Member Association Awards for 2021, you can watch the presentation of the awards on BWF TV. The awards ceremony was held in Bangkok at the BWF Members’ Forum 2022.

The awards video showcases the best practice of award winners. Congratulations to the winners of the four categories and to all of those who were short-listed.

Launched in early 2022, the Member Association Awards are designed to showcase excellence and promote best practice across the BWF’s 198 Member Associations (MAs).

Each year, MAs are invited to submit applications to be considered in one of four BWF membership award categories:

  • BWF Membership Grant Programme Impact Award
  • Participation Award
  • Inclusion Award
  • Promotion Award
