Badminton Europe’s Women in Badminton Commission has replaced the name ´Women in the Spotlight´ to ‘Badminton for Women´ in one of its initiatives since April 2017. The reason to the change of name is to be inclusive for both men and women. Both genders will be seen to feature in our Women in Badminton activities (interviews, videos, award nominations, etc).

Badminton for Women' was used as the new award name at the 6th BEC Awards Gala in Dubrovnik in 2017, replacing the previous name, ‘BEC Women in Badminton’ Award.

This award is open to both male and female and with no age limit. The nomination process for 2018 will be opened soon and all Member Associations will be informed when the nomination process has started. 

The shortlisted nominees from the ‘Badminton for Women’ initiative will automatically be the nominees for the 2018 BEC Badminton for Women Award, which will be awarded at the 7th BEC Awards Gala Night in Kiev, Ukraine on 27th April 2019. The award winner is decided from the shortlisted nominees by the BEC Award Panel in cooperation with the Women in Badminton Commission.
