The National Administrators’ Course participants and experts

The National Administrators’ Course is tailored to individuals actively involved in administrative roles within their respective badminton associations. Participants delve into essential topics that, by the course's conclusion, will allow them to emerge equipped with a deeper understanding of the fundamental pillars underpinning effective administration in the world of badminton.

On the other side of the educational spectrum, the Level 1 Event Management Course is devised for event organisers responsible for overseeing Grade 3 tournaments and International Junior/U17 tournaments. The comprehensive curriculum covers a broad range of subjects, including event and competition structures, key considerations in event management, establishing strong Local Organizing Committees, event planning and execution, the event evaluation process, and the strategic aspects of communication and commercial planning.
