The Badminton World Federation (BWF) has officially published a World Team Ranking. It documents the holistic development of the 104 nations participating in the sport.
Points are awarded for the best individual achievements across all five disciplines of the sport, as well as, for results of BWF team events namely, the Sudirman Cup, Thomas and Uber Cups.
Though the team rankings will not yet be counted towards the official ranking of teams at the team championships, the World Team Ranking Table does however demonstrates the equal importance and attention the BWF believes all five disciplines deserve. A final new feature that will be unveiled in the final quarter of 2011 is the World Juniors Ranking Table. This feature will serve to elevate the status and chart the progress of the next generation of stars in the sport.
