AIRBADMINTON
THE NEW OUTDOOR GAME

Badminton is a popular sport with more than 300 million active players worldwide.

AirBadminton has been specially developed by the Badminton World Federation (BWF) to bring the sport of Badminton to a new dimension and make it suitable for outdoor use.

This makes the sport more accessible for more people around the world.

DER AS AIRSHUTTLE

Due to the shape and the higher weight, the AS AirShuttle is significantly less susceptible to wind.

Nevertheless, its featherball-like flight characteristics are convincing, so that the sport can be played with normal badminton rackets.

The high durability of the material makes the ball very robust and suitable for outdoor use.

INNOVATION FOR NEW PATHS

The Badminton World Federation (BWF) announced the launch of the new outdoor game AirBadminton in May 2019. By using the same racket, but with the new outdoor shuttlecock, the AirShuttle, people can play badminton on hard, grass and sand surfaces. By improving accessibility and more positive experiences with the outdoor game, the BWF hopes to increase people's awareness and participation in badminton.

"AirBadminton makes it easier for everyone to devote themselves to the sport and is better suited to playing in different environments," said Dong Jiong, VICTOR's Global Technical Advisor after playing with AirShuttle. In the following phase, the BWF plans to provide a permanent outdoor space on various surfaces for public use and will work together to encourage more people to play badminton in more locations.

VICTOR is the first badminton brand to work with BWF and launch AS AirShuttle.
