Line Judges

Role of the Line Judge

A line judge is responsible for indicating where a shuttle landed “in” or “out” if the shuttle land near the lines he/she is assigned to monitor.

Depending on the level of the tournament, there may be as many as 10 line judges assigned to a court for a particular match.

BWF Line Judges

The BWF has a pool of more than 100 international line judges who serve at BWF major events such as the BWF World Championships, Sudirman Cup, Thomas & Uber Cups, and major multi-sport events such as the Olympic Games.

BWF line judges must meet certain minimum criteria related to their prior experience of officiating at a national or continental confederation level, and must be nominated by their respective continental confederation to be considered.

BWF Line Judge Nomination Process

The BWF assigns line judges for its major events, based on the nominations from the respective continental confederation to ensure appropriate regional representation at all events.

BWF line judges serve four year terms with an opportunity to renew for a second term.
