Event Management Course

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.

From the 2nd to the 3rd of November 2019, Badminton Europe (BEC) delivered the third edition of World Academy of Sport Courses in Budaörs, Hungary.
