Player Development is the backbone of our sport in an ever-changing and developing climate to give players opportunities to develop and achieve their goals to be the best they can. Badminton Oceania aims to progress operation structures and framework to enhance player pathways while working to assist Member Associations representation in the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games and world events of importance. Our Player Development programme has a direct correlation to our Coach education programme as high-quality coaches and high-quality players go hand in hand.
Badminton Oceania’s Player Development programme is a 4-Tier programme aimed primarily at under 23 (U23) athletes where Member Associations needs are addressed on an individual basis according to the development of the sport in their country.
