This is a reminder that on the 5 July 2023, the BWF will celebrate the second World Badminton Day.
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.
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 why not register and organise your own World Badminton Day activity.
World Badminton Day provides an opportunity to engage new and existing badminton participants. Activities may bring badminton and other themes together, including culture, music, food, art, other sports. The list is endless, and the celebrations can be organised in any location!
The attached Information Pack provides recommendations and ideas of how you can participate in World Badminton Day.
The online branding toolkit includes the World Badminton Day logo package, guidelines on how to use the logo, and WBD frames that can be used to promote the activity on social media (attached image for reference) or when delivering the activities. Please click here (link) to access the materials.
The World Badminton Day logo is currently available in 15 language versions. Member Associations can request to have a new language version created for their event by the BWF.
