The BWF Para badminton World Championships is hosted every two years (on odd numbered years), with the Continental Championships hosted every other year.
The HULIC DAIHATSU BWF Para Badminton World Championships 2022 will be held in Tokyo, Japan, 1 – 6 November 2022.
Under Clause 17.2 of the BWF Anti-Doping Regulations, the BWF has selected the HULIC DAIHATSU BWF Para Badminton World Championships 2022 as an event where players must complete anti-doping educational activities before they participate in the event in Tokyo.
This means that every player must complete an anti-doping education course before they participate. This is a mandatory requirement.
Member Associations must provide BWF with proof of completion of the anti-doping education training for each player going to Tokyo no later than Monday 17 October 2022.
