BWF Player and Coach Update

By BWF | Dec. 21, 2018, 2:01 p.m. (ET)


Dear Member Associations:


Attached (click HERE for attachment) is a memorandum to BWF Players and Coaches for sharing with all your Players, Coaches, Team Managers, and other stakeholders through your communications channels such as direct emailing, federation websites, federation social media, etc.

BWF and its Athletes Commission will also be posting this memorandum through its social media channels shortly, so please look for these posts and feel free to direct everyone to these platforms, too.

This memorandum is a summary of the important recent changes to the Laws and Technical Regulations about which your Players and Coaches should be informed. It is important that they are aware of these changes so they can behave accordingly at upcoming tournaments. Having said that, it is still recommended that all Member Associations, Players, Coaches, Team Managers, and all other stakeholders be aware of all BWF Codes of Conduct, Laws, and Regulations.


In your communication to your stakeholders, please ask that they contact your federation with any questions; the federation can consult BWF if further clarity is required.


Thanks in advance for your assistance, and have a wonderful holiday season and successful 2019!

Kind regards, 


Christopher Trenholme

BWF - Senior Technical Events Manager
