Technical officials are central to controlling the game of badminton on-court and ensuring fair match play in accordance with the Laws of Badminton and the various competition regulations.
Ensuring a high standard of officiating at international competitions is a key goal of the BWF. Training and development of technical officials is an important part of maintaining consistently high standards of officiating.
The BWF appoints technical officials to all BWF Para badminton events.
