HistoryEdit

Originally founded on 15 November 1931 as Nederlandse Badminton Bond (NBB) in Noordwijk by the pioneers of Dutch badminton including Dirk Stikker.[5] It later became one of the founding members of International Badminton Federation and Badminton Europe. As a hope to gain more exposure, the association was rebranded with a new logo and renamed as Badminton Nederland starting from 30 January 2010.[5]
