Technical Officials

Technical officials are central to controlling the game of badminton on-court and ensuring fair match play which follows the Laws of Badminton and the various competition regulations.

Ensuring a high standard of officiating at international competitions is a key goal of the BWF. Training and development of technical officials is an important part of maintaining consistently high standards of officiating.
