The Badminton World Federation is pleased to announce the development and provision of new Shuttle Time Country Logos.
More than 100 BWF Member Associations are now making use of the Shuttle Time Programme, and it’s various resources, a milestone that has been reached through good partnership working and collaboration between the BWF, 5 CC’s and Member Associations. With so many countries utilizing the programme, it is important for the BWF to maintain the global identity of Shuttle Time. This can be evidenced through the consistent look and feel of the 17 language versions of the Teachers Manual and Lesson Plans.

With that in mind, the BWF have supported the design of National Shuttle Time logos, which can be used by MA’s to promote the programme within their own country.
