Our Goals

To ensure all participants have a unique holiday with world class badminton included, as well as soaking up the sun on the soft white sands and beautiful beaches, we provide guests with the opportunity to swim with turtles, learn some of the history of Barbados on an island tour and get up close and personal at The Garrison - horse racing. In addition to drinking some of the best rum the Caribbean has to offer, you can see how it’s made during the New Mount Gay tour and eat freshly caught fish at Oistins Fish Fry (one of the biggest BBQ parties you’ll ever experience).

We pride ourselves on organising a holiday like no other. We strive to ensure all participants leave Barbados knowing they have had a once in a lifetime experience. By mixing with badminton VIPs and like-minded people from across the globe, by the time you leave we hope, you will call the friends you meet your BIC family.
