MEMBERSHIP -  Districts/Clubs
Suva and Lautoka remain the key badminton areas, governed by the current availability of suitable playing facilities. But we are also working on Nausori, Labasa and other parts of Fiji with Shuttle Time for Schools conducted by the Badminton Oceania Regional Development Officers

Badminton Fiji will from early 2021 embark on assisting individuals to set up clubs across Fiji. This will help fulfil an important objective within our Constitution and strengthen competition and development across the country as well as build on administrative arrangements within our sport.


After two big years (2018 and 2019) in as far as international and national competitions were concerned, our Badminton calendar virtually hit a brick wall in 2020! We started the year with our senior team attending the Oceania Championships in Ballarat, Australia,

However, Covid 19 came along and shut us all down.

Indeed 2020, 2021, 2022 were relatively quiet years as far as completing our targeted calendar of events. However, we did manage to host the Fiji Open and Junior Nationals before year end 2022 and 2023. The tournaments, which ran side by side over 4 days were a great success and enabled players to get back on court after a lengthy enforced break. The Fiji Nationals had 83 entries across two grades, while the Junior Nationals had 70 entries across 3 age groups – under 19, under 15 and under 12 years.

On the positive side while the BOC RDO continues his great work with shuttle time delivery and liaison with the FNSC, Fiji Badminton has also put in place our own Development Officer, Sristi Nadan.

From September 2022, Fiji Badminton restarted its student programme at Yat Sen and it has been pleasing to see good numbers in attendance.  

Fiji Badminton has also signed MOU’s with Badminton World Federation and Badminton Oceania and will receive funding going forward to complete a number of activities. These activities center around shuttle time and the student after-school programme, junior player development, the National Championships and Air Badminton.  More support is also available for para badminton once we submit an agreed programme, which we are working on.

National Competitions Conducted

  • September :  Fiji Nationals, Yat Sen Hall, Suva
  • September :  Fiji Junior Nationals, Yat Sen Hall, Suva

Activities in Development Programs Conducted
An Oceania Foundation Coaching Course (October 2020) was organised by Badminton Oceania virtually from New Zealand for our development coaches based in the Western, Northern and Central Divisions. This served as a bridging course to prepare Shuttle Time teachers and development players training to become coaches for the BWF (Badminton World Federation) Levelled Coaching Courses.

With support from the BWF and BOC, Badminton Fiji held two training camps targeting junior development squad players in January 2021. The two-weeklong camps ran simultaneously with one held in Suva and the other in Lautoka. The program comprised 2 x 2-hour sessions daily for 5 days, with an intent on getting players back on court in the new year and preparing them for future competitions.
