Enabling a sustainable future

Vegan Badminton is an exciting new initiative to form a league for clubs playing badminton with synthetic shuttle.

As a club we use synthetic shuttles at all our club sessions.

Traditionally Badminton is played with a feather shuttles which naturally entails harming animals to source the feathers. However, the growing trend towards sustainability means that Badminton is slowly adopting to using synthetic shuttles.

Badminton World Federation (BWF) has already approved the use of synthetic feather shuttlecocks at BWF International sanctioned tournaments of all levels in 2021. This a huge step away from using natural feather shuttles and helping ensure long-term sustainability. BWF found that synthetic feather shuttle could reduce shuttlecock usage up to 25 percent, providing a significant environmental and economic edge for badminton going forward.

The added benefit of this is that using synthetic shuttles means by default the game of Badminton is going vegan!
