Badminton at grassroots
“Because we want every child to have a chance to play badminton”
Badminton Asia Confederation (BAC) works closely with Badminton World Federation (BWF) in the implementation of the Shuttle Time program in Asia.
Shuttle Time is also complemented by BASE Project (equipment support program) to make badminton an accessible sport in schools and educational institutions across Asia.
- BWF and BAC want to popularise badminton at the grassroots level.
- How we intend to do it: Implement Shuttle Time and support with BASE Project for schools and educational institutions via our member associations
Essentially, Shuttle Time acts as the self-study boot camp for teachers and coaches, helping them hone their skills and expertise in making badminton a fun and safe sport to play for children and youth – via modules and instructional videos.
BASE is the acronym for Badminton Awareness in Schools and Education Institutions. Acting as an introductory learning programme, children across the continent are now enjoying badminton games with the equipment provided to them via BASE. Each school or institution is provided with 18 racquets, 2 badminton nets and 6 tubes of Yonex shuttles.
