Launched in July 2014, and supported by Dubai Sports Council and the Badminton World Federation (BWF), Shuttle Time is an exciting, sustainable development programme for badminton players across the UAE.

The primary goal of Shuttle Time is to increase the number of people playing badminton, but equally important is ensuring that all players are given the opportunity to learn the correct skills from the outset and for existing players to improve their game.   All players should benefit from state-of-the-art equipment and expert coaching.

BWF Shuttle Time offers school teachers access to free resources, training and equipment, which support the teaching of enjoyable, safe and inclusive badminton activities to children aged 5-15 years old. Shuttle Time lessons are designed to provide children with a positive image of badminton through many opportunities to have fun, engage with others and experience success.
