For years, Denmark has been setting the pace in the development of educational and training methods for young badminton players.

The country also routinely develops more world-class players than any other nation. One example: Viktor Axelsen, a 27-year-old Danish badminton player from Odense, was both 2017 World champion and a 2020 Olympic champion.

Currently, more than 550 badminton clubs exist across the country, providing youth with ample opportunity to engage in the sport. All Danish badminton clubs are members of the Badminton Association of Denmark, a group established in 1930 to develop the sport and its official guidelines.

Danish badminton is said to date from 1925 when a sports shop owner brought four racquets from England in order to play with three friends, before subsequently introducing the sport at a club in Copenhagen.
