Badminton is one of the most popular sports in the world. In many developing nations there is strong interest in playing badminton but less access to rackets, shuttles and nets or coaching and teaching resources.

That is why the Badminton World Federation (BWF) launched Shuttle Time as a way of helping badminton fans and players across the world support their fellow players.

Shuttle Time was launched in 2012 and is helping schools deliver badminton for children aged 5-15. It offers teachers access to high quality badminton resources and training, and there are already more than 500 trained tutors and over 2500 trained teachers.

The teaching resources are now available in 14 languages and BWF has provided badminton equipment to more than 50 projects.

BADMINTON England is proud to support BWF’s Shuttle Time.

How can you help?

If you’re coming to watch the world’s best at the Yonex All England Open Championships from 4-9 March at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham, bring any reusable rackets, badminton kit or synthetic shuttlecocks.

There will be a special Shuttle Time container for the equipment which will be delivered by BADMINTON England to badminton projects in Ghana.

Please bring along your spare kit (or send it with friends). The container will be located in the BADMINTON England area at the All Action All England. 

If your club or school would like to find out more about Shuttle Time and how you can support badminton in developing countries, please contact
