Primarily envisaged as a development-based event, the tournament attracted a wide variety of nations. It is the first opportunity for talented young badminton players to represent their country in a world event, to experience top level competition and perhaps put them on the pathway towards becoming one of the stars of the future.

Reflecting a general trend in elite sports towards younger stars, the BWF World Junior Championships has evolved from a “development event” to an elite tournament in its own right.

The BWF World Junior Championships provides badminton fans with a first glimpse of the stars of the future.

Eye Level Cups

The 2011 edition of the BWF World Junior championship saw the birth of five new individual trophies called the “Eye- Level Cups”.

Korean educational service provider, Daekyo, sponsored the annual junior tournament with the sponsorship running through to 2020. As part of its support,  Daekyo provides a total cash pool of USD36,000 in scholarships for the winners to share each year.

Dr Kang Young Joong, former BWF President (2005 – 2013) and Chairman of Daekyo, has always been a firm supporter of youth development in badminton. This sponsorship of the BWF World Junior Championships is an important way to support the most talented youth from each Championships.
