The United States of America (USA) will host a total of 44 countries for the 23rd edition of the Badminton World Federation’s (BWF) World Junior Championships scheduled for September 24- October 8, 2023, in Spokane, Washington, USA. Due to the vast development performance of the sport in Africa, Ghana and Mauritius are the only selected African Countries representing Africa at the 2023 African Championships.

Ghana enters this Championship with an enviable performance by being the Best African performer at the last World Junior Championships in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

Participation in the World Championships is vital for Ghana as it brings critical ranking points opportunities for World Rankings towards the Paris 2024 qualifications and the Youth Olympics; in line with qualifying standards, the athletes will also participate in subsequent events to increase their overall ranking at the global level; and an excellent development experience for athletes and coaches.

The BWF World Junior Championships consists of two competitions: a mixed team championship for the Suhandinata Cup and individual titles for the Eye Level Cups – all hosted over 14 days, attracting up to 44 Country teams and 560 players worldwide. The World Championships provides Badminton’s 709 million fans and global media with a first glimpse of the future stars.

The World Junior Championship is the first opportunity for talented young badminton players to represent their country in a world event. It is also an opportunity to experience top-level competition and perhaps put them on the pathway towards becoming one of the future stars.
