The most prestigious tournament in Badminton. Competing as individuals in five events, Men's singles, Women's singles, Men's and Women's doubles and Mixed doubles, success confers the title of World Champion on the winner(s). First held in 1977 and originally held every two years, the World Championships has since 2003 been held every year except Olympic years, where the winner of the Olympic title is considered the 'world champion' in all but name.
Badminton England have hosted the prestigious event twice in 1993 and 2003 in Birmingham. The 2011 edition will be the first to be held in London and takes place 8 -14 August 2011.
