The BWF has identified several key research areas and questions that will significantly benefit the sport:

Badminton Performance

  • What are the physical performance characteristics in badminton, and how do they differ among genders and disciplines?
  • What factors determine performance in badminton, and how do they vary based on gender and disciplines?
  • What are the physical capacities of elite players, and how do aerobic and anaerobic capacities differ among genders and disciplines?

Physical Activity & Well-Being

  • What are the physical and social benefits of playing badminton recreationally and competitively?
  • How does playing badminton compare to AirBadminton in terms of physical and social benefits?
  • What are the specific physical and social benefits for youth and older adults who engage in recreational badminton or AirBadminton?
