The Badminton World Championship is a badminton tournament organized by the Badminton World Federation (BWF). The tournament offers the most ranking points besides the Olympics, although it doesn’t offer financial prizes. The winners are crowned “World Champions”. The World Championship is an annual event, although it is not held once every 4 years due to scheduling conflicts with the Olympics.
From 1989 to 2001, the Badminton World Championship was held after the Sudirman Cup in the same city. Things have changed since then, and the tournament is now being held in different locations, with the most recent one being held in Glasgow.
This year, the tournament will take place in Nanjing, China. The World Championship will feature men and women singles tournaments as well as men and women doubles and mixed doubles tournaments. China is the most successful country since the World Championship’s inception (1977), having won the title with shutouts on 3 occasions (1987, 2010, 2011).
