A virtual meeting for Team Managers on Tuesday 12 September at 21:00 KL time / 15:00 CET will help them get ready.

Please see below and pass this information on to your Team Managers and Coaches.


  1. Player Education / Dual Career Information

The BWF Player Education and Dual Career information booth will operate from 25 September to 4 October. In addition, IOC Athlete365 Career+ Self-Discovery Workshop sessions will be offered for players who register in advance. Through one-on-one conversations, team focus groups, and workshop sessions, players will:

  • learn how they can successfully combine a playing career with further education
  • discover tools and resources to help them develop beyond their playing careers
  • explore how their unique attributes can translate into a successful career beyond sport

The BWF has a wide range of programmes and scholarships available for athletes who are looking to advance their studies and develop their skills while they continue to train and compete.

For more information on the BWF Player Education & Dual Career programme, see the BWF Development Website (linked here).
