Events play a key part in promoting badminton as a dynamic, attractive sport. Current and potential fans may be engaged by viewing live matches in their area, or through media coverage of local, national or world events. The more top-quality events are held, the more fans can be engaged and involved in the sport.
High-quality events are complex in terms of organisation – before, during and after – and require attention to a large number of details. In order to help national federations improve the quality of their events or upgrade to higher-level events, the BWF has created a series of educational resources for event organisers. The Events Programme consists of:
- Introductory Event Management Course (online) – providing a general introduction to BWF events
- Level 1 Event Management Course (face-to-face) – aimed at event organisers wishing to stage Grade 3 events
- Level 2 Event Management Course (face-to-face) – aimed at event organisers interested in upgrading Grade 3 events to Grade 2
