World Badminton Day tournament commences with fierce action
The Guyana Badminton Association on Thursday ran off its annual tournament to commemorate World Badminton Day 2023 at the National Gymnasium, Mandela Avenue.
This tournament, sponsored by Total Solutions, includes students of the Nursery Badminton Academy, Yonex Badminton Club and the Berbice Badminton Clubs.
What is World Badminton Day?
According to the Badminton World Federation, World Badminton Day brings people and communities together to experience fun and inclusive badminton, through a variety of active, engaging, and innovative badminton events.
These events will take place globally over the same period of time. While events may range in size, location, and focus; the common theme to celebrate and promote badminton will be shared by all.
When is World Badminton Day?
The International Badminton Federation (IBF), as it was originally named (now Badminton World Federation – BWF), was established on July 5, 1934 with nine founding Member Associations.
In recognition of this significant date in badminton’s history, World Badminton Day will be celebrated annually on July 5, with activities and events delivered throughout this week.
