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 briefly in 2021.[1] In 2023, it was announced that it would be moved back to Malaysia.[2] It aims to maintain Asia as the benchmark for world badminton in many years to come. It now has 43 member federations.[3] 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).[4]

During Badminton Asia Extraordinary General Meeting on 16 October 2015 in Kuwait, the organization re-branded itself by unveiling the new logo for the confederation renaming the organization as Badminton Asia.[5]
