Player Subsidies and Support

From time to time and on a case-by-case basis, Badminton WA may provide subsidies to its registered members competing at the highest levels of the sport.

This support is aimed to assist the players in meeting the costs associated with travelling to and participating in major events sanctioned by respective national and international bodies.

Preference is given to subsidising participation in events where there is a selection process (for example, Badminton Australia organises selection of players to represent Australia at the World Junior Championships).

A player may apply for a subsidy up to 3 times per year.

As a general rule, the form should be completed after the player's return from the event that they are applying for a subsidy for. However in special circumstances an exception can be made - please contact us to discuss.

Player Subsidy Application Form

Please provide complete information on the events for which the subsidy is requested. Please attach supporting documentation (e.g. copies of airfare and accommodation invoices, entry fees, and any other relevant documents evidencing travel to and participation in the event). Please make sure the tax invoices are included - for example, for an air ticket you may have an "e-ticket" and/or an "electronic itinerary" and a "tax invoice" - please make sure you attach the tax invoice.

If the training camp and event are held in conjunction a player can still apply for both. However, it will be up to the Board of Management to decide whether to recommend for both or just individual. NOTE - To allow applicants to apply for assistance for events up to 3 times in a year and to apply for assistance up to 2 times in a year for training camps.
