A total of 142 countries across five Continental Confederations have now successfully implemented the BWF Shuttle Time Schools Programme with the addition of Azerbaijan, Burundi and USA in 2021.
The programme has successfully trained and educated 59,424 teachers worldwide.
Recently, the Shuttle Time resource material published its 22nd language – Czech – which allows teachers with limited experience to introduce badminton related skills, movements and tactics to pupils through a variety of fun games and activities.
