Badminton has a great deal to offer its participants. It is a fast, indoor, day/night, all weather, mixed gender, non-contact sport, which in the high performance spectrum requires exceptional specific physical and mental capacities.

Badminton NSW offers a variety of benefits to its Members including insurance, coaching and technical official courses to all its affiliates. In 2016-2017, Badminton NSW in collaboration with Badminton Australia is committed to growing active membership and participation of badminton in Australia. This will allow Badminton Badminton NSW and Badminton Australia to achieve a sport category that allows for additional funding to be put towards its Member programs that drive participation and membership including Shuttle Time, sport in schools, para-badminton, and other development projects. 

Badminton NSW have introduced an optional Metro Direct Affiliation Rebate program to encourage membership growth and reward its associations/clubs in NSW.  All directly affiliated associations/clubs will also be eligible to apply for financial grants and/or in-kind assistance for member development initiatives from Badminton NSW subject to board approval.  For more information please refer to "2016 Sydney Metro Direct Affiliation Pilot Information" document or contact membership@badmintonnsw.org.au

If you or your group do not meet the Metro Direct Affiliation criteria, you are welcome to affiliate through one of the existing associations/clubs who can subsequently submit the following "2016 NSWBA Affiliation Form".

Together we can make a difference in NSW!
