Multi Sport Events
Badminton is an Olympic Games sport and made its debut at the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games. Badminton has also been part of the Commonwealth Games sports program since 1966.
The BWF encourages the inclusion of badminton in other multi-sport events. The BWF associates itself with a number of multi sport events and organisers in order to promote badminton throughout the world.
Badminton is also a sport played widely by people with a disability. The International Badminton Association for the Disabled (IBAD) is governed by the general rules set down by the BWF.
