Logo Shuttle Time 200Whether you are a qualified school teacher or a coach looking for a comprehensive badminton training programme to teach badminton to children and youth at a club or community centre in your neighbourhood, Shuttle Time will meet your needs.

With the strategic vision to bring badminton to every child in the world, Shuttle Time is an innovative training programme that aims to help teachers and coaches develop the skills knowledge and confidence to plan and deliver safe and fun badminton lessons to children and youth using the BWF Shuttle Time Programme.

“The strength of this programme lies in how it harnesses a range of web-based training resources to make learning effective and possible for teachers and coaches access anywhere in the world,” said BWF Development Manager, Ian Wright.

The main training resources are a Teachers’ Manual (comprising of 10 modules), 4 lesson planpackages (comprising of 22 lesson plans), and 92 instructional video clips.

On 30 November, a series of the BWF Shuttle Time instructional training videos were released onto the BWF official online TV channel, BadmintonWorld.TV. These videos were a major part of the Shuttle Time training resource materials developed to complement and enhance learning.

Both and the BWF Shuttle Time Training Resource Web Portal then opened its doors a few days later, and the programme is now ready for teachers and coaches to register and gain access to the wealth of training resources made available worldwide with free access.

So join us in bringing badminton to every child in the world, and make badminton the most popular schools sport.
