About WTBF


The World Tamil Badminton Federation was founded by Kandiah Singam in Switzerland. It started in April 2013, where the first committee was formed from the players and well-wishers from all over the participating countries. These countries included the UK, Switzerland, France and Canada. Today the committee has grown and now, also includes those from Germany, Holland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Sri Lanka, Australia and the USA.

The Federation is about culture and connecting generations, making a team of friends who turn into family as they grow and bond together. This has been a great way for the Tamil community to connect, stay connected and expand all over the world. More importantly it is getting our youth active and involved with learning about their culture and histroy. It promotes healthy and active living for both youth and adults through the game of badminton.
