World Badminton Day: 60 Days to Go!

World Badminton Day: 60 Days to Go!

BWF will celebrate the second World Badminton Day on 5 July 2023. Everyone can take part in the celebrations, and with 60 days to go, it’s time to start planning your own activity!

It was over 88 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 is held annually on 5 July.

Last year more than 200 World Badminton Day activities were delivered across 60 countries by National Badminton Federations, clubs, communities, and badminton fans.

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 activities. These activities will take place globally over the same period of time. While activities may range in size, location, and focus; the common theme to celebrate and promote badminton will be shared by all.

Everyone is encouraged to take part in World Badminton Day, either through attending a World Badminton Day activity, or registering and organising your own World Badminton Day activity.
