Type of Support & Implementation Process

The following areas are considered when determining support to be offered to each Member Association as part of the Membership Grants Programme:

  • Areas of development highlighted through the BWF Categorisation Tool
  • Priorities highlighted by MAs through the BWF Membership Questionnaire
  • Areas of development highlighted by the Continental Confederations

Based on the above areas, the BWF, in collaboration with its Continental Confederations, offer a package of specific support to each Member Association.

Type of support available

Through the Membership Grants programme, Member Associations can access support in a range of areas. In all cases, support offered through the Membership Grants Programme should be measurable and represent clear outcomes, which support the growth of badminton nationally.

A list of common areas in which support is offered can be viewed below.
