In October 2018, the BCA Council approved a proposal from BCA Women in Badminton Commission for the introduction of an annual African Women in Badminton Award (AWIBA).

The objectives of the AWIBA are:

  • To reward outstanding women who have contributed to the development of badminton in Africa by demonstrating irreproachable attitude and dedication to the sport in their respective fields (player/administrator/technical official/official/coach and other roles) for the current and/or previous years.
  • To motivate women to get involved in badminton – whether in Africa or elsewhere.
  • To create role models for other women (and men).
  • To celebrate the achievements of African women in badminton.
