Badminton Australia has been rated as progressing, with performance outcomes below target in 2014. There are a number of very promising pathway athletes that Badminton Australia believes are genuine medal prospects for 2018 and beyond; however, medal performances in the short term are unlikely.

The centralised program out of Melbourne remains a key ingredient of the program. The sport continues to challenge itself and is implementing a new coaching and service support structure so there is efficient and effective use of resources. Some of the priorities include: new partnerships with the Indonesian, Chinese and Malaysian national training centres; a new Victorian Institute of Sport (VIS) partnership for strength and conditioning; and focused support for athletes most likely to meet the program aims.


When benchmarked against other Australia’s Winning Edge sports, Badminton Australia falls below in a number of areas. Badminton Australia is continuing to work through constitutional reform, which will improve its ability to deliver national programs and products and increase the benchmark standard.
