The 2016 Rio Olympic Games is one of the best Olympic Games to date for the European badminton contingent, bagging four medals from three different countries. This calls for a celebration but there is no time to lose despite the great achievements and historical outing in Rio de Janiero for the Confederation.

Badminton Europe Confederation (BEC) will be having its Board of Directors and Commission Meetings in Dubrovnik, Croatia from 9-11 September 2016. The three days meeting will be attended by our Board of Directors, Commission Members and BEC staffs.
