Badminton at the 1996 Summer Olympics

Badminton at the 1996 Summer Olympics included the four events held at the previous Games (men's and women's singles, men's and women's doubles) as well as a fifth event: mixed doubles. An additional change to the tournament was the playoff game for the bronze medal rather than the awarding of two bronzes.
