Today, Badminton Europe Confederation would like to wish the Portuguese Badminton Federation (Federação Portuguesa de Badminton), a happy 65th anniversary. 

The federation over the years has played a pivotal part in Badminton Europe’s efforts to grow the sport in Europe.

Happy Birthday!

The federation turns 65 today, marking an incredible number of years in service, which began on 1 July 1954.

In the last year, the Portuguese federation has hosted BEC Commission Meetings, European Mixed Team Championship Qualifications, as well as coaching courses, both Level 1 and Level 2.

Not to mention the successful Portuguese International that is currently on the BEC Circuit, which Centre of Excellence player Felix Burestedt won in 2019.

A word from the Director

- Celebrating another anniversary is celebrating someone's life, this year 2019 will mark the 65th anniversary of the Portuguese Badminton Federation, and with that, is celebrated the life and history of an institution dedicated to sport in particularly Badminton. 

- We celebrate the dedication of athletes, coaches and managers who over the years have done their best to make Badminton a source of pride for Portuguese sport, Carlos Paiva, Director of the Portuguese Badminton Federation said.
