“I encourage players from around the world to get in touch with their National Association and NOC to find out how to be involved. You could be a current national-level player or even a recently retired champion.", BWF Secretary General Thomas Lund.

The Badminton World Federation (BWF) and the Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC) today released the qualification system for AirBadminton’s debut at the ANOC World Beach Games in Bali, Indonesia from 5-12 August 2023. AirBadminton at Bali 2023 will feature 72 athletes (36 men and 36 women) across four medal events:

Men’s Triples

Women’s Triples

Mixed Doubles

Mixed Team Relay


The Mixed Team Relay and Mixed Doubles will feature athletes already qualified for the Men’s and Women’s Triples.

Host nation Indonesia is guaranteed one Men’s Triples and one Women’s Triples entry provided they pass the athlete eligibility criteria.


How does India prepare itself for the representation at ANOC World Beach Games 2023? As per the qualification system, only 11 countries can represent 3 male and 3 female players for triples events. And from a continent, a maximum of two countries can get eligible.


There are serious questions among Indian badminton fans.


Will BAI be the National Association for AirBadminton? If yes, Will BAI announce AirBadminton national circuit tournaments to select the players to represent the county in the continental qualification tournaments planned during early 2023?




BWF Secretary General Thomas Lund said this is an important milestone for the sport following AirBadminton’s launch in May 2019. “AirBadminton on sand delivers an exciting, skillful, intense level of play, and with such a proud history of badminton in Indonesia, we expect our very first World Beach Games appearance in Bali to be a thrilling one. I encourage players from around the world to get in touch with their National Association and NOC to find out how to be involved. You could be a current national-level player or even a recently retired champion. We want as many people as possible to try AirBadminton. It is a new avenue of competition. We see that it will grow very quickly, and view Bali 2023 as a great springboard for more tournaments and greater participation.”, he said.
