Historical Funding








Badminton became an official sport at the Barcelona 1992 Olympic Games. It is unique to other net sports in that it uses a shuttlecock instead of a ball.

At Tokyo 2020 athletes will compete in men's and women's singles, men's and women's doubles and mixed doubles. Read more on the Tokyo 2020 website.

The UK National Governing Body is Badminton England, based in Milton Keynes. Find out more on the Badminton England website.
