About Us

Badminton New Zealand is the national body responsible for the promotion and development of badminton in New Zealand. We were established in 1927 and were a founding member of the International Badminton Federation (now BWF), which was established in 1934. Badminton New Zealand was incorporated on 26 May 1938.

In New Zealand, Badminton is the fastest growing sport in secondary schools, with more than 10,000 participants, having overtaken all other racquet sports to be the number one racquet sport for young people 13-18 years old.

Our purpose is "Inspiring Kiwis to Love Badminton for Life"
