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.

A key factor in maintaining the global identity of Shuttle Time, is consistency. 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.
