The Badminton Asia is the governing body of badminton in Asia. It is one of the 5 continental bodies under the flag of the Badminton World Federation (BWF). The confederation was established in 1959, headquartered in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia until it was moved to Maldives in 2021.[1] It aims to maintain Asia as the benchmark for world badminton in many years to come. It now has 43 member federations.[2] It had decided in the Annual General Meeting on July 16, 2006 that the confederation name was changed from Asian Badminton Confederation (ABC) to Badminton Asia Confederation (BAC).[3]

During Badminton Asia Extraordinary General Meeting on 16 October 2015 in Kuwait, the organization rebranded itself by unveiling the new logo for the confederation renaming the organization as Badminton Asia.[4]
