Kuala Lumpur: The Badminton World Federation (BWF) announced on Friday that the first World Badminton Day will be celebrated on July 5, 2022.

World Badminton Day was created in recognition of the founding of the International Badminton Federation (now BWF) nearly 88 years ago on July 5, 1934, and it would be celebrated annually.

“I am excited to follow the various World Badminton Day activities and to observe their impact on our sport globally,” said BWF President Poul-Erik Hoyer.

BWF also encouraged associations, clubs, communities, and badminton fans worldwide to celebrate this meaningful day in their own ways.

Fans can celebrate the day by participating in events such as world record attempts, shuttle time courses or competitions, fun competitions, free badminton lessons, exhibitions, badminton festivals, coaching courses, and community events.
