The Badminton Australia high performance program is rated as progressing. The program is building momentum following significant changes in early 2015 to its high performance leadership and coaching structure, which utilises consultant coaches and delivers to a targeted group of emerging athletes.

Results at the badminton world championships saw positive performances from emerging level athletes; however other athletes at this event were hindered by illness. As such, performances are expected to improve at future events. Badminton Australia has delivered on many critical actions and objectives through the year, looking to progress the program at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games and beyond to the Commonwealth Games. Its Melbourne-based daily performance facilities provide an ideal training environment and performance support services for its targeted group of emerging athletes.

The program is developing critical competition and training experience by participating in a number of specific international training camps and competitions, which integrate with world-class athletes and consultant coaches.

Governance

When benchmarked against Australia’s Winning Edge sports, Badminton Australia has some areas below the standard. The strategic and participation plans have been developed in conjunction with all states which demonstrates alignment to a single national entity for all forms of the sport. Badminton Australia is working through constitutional reform, which will improve its ability to deliver national programs and products. Overall the sport has made some steps towards adopting good governance standards.
