Badminton New Zealand has been working to advance the sport in the country since 1927. It is proudly one of the founding members of the International Badminton Federation which was formed in 1934. The federation aims to further increase the sport’s popularity in the country, which at current count is being played by around 12,000 New Zealanders. Proof to the sport’s popularity in New Zealand, there are about 27 regional associations administering the sport all throughout the country. Badminton New Zealand is spearheaded by an executive director. There are five committees in charge of developing and administering each of Badminton New Zealand’s flagship programs on coaching, high performance, court officials, competitions and tournaments, and junior development.
