ABOUT US

We're Martin & Yvonne, a young-ish couple who love travelling the world, visiting new places and trying new things.

This site covers all the events we've been to and would love to go to again plus plenty that we've yet to try - we like to think of it as planning well in advance, with an extremely optimistic bucket list!

All England Badminton 2014

Live Stream, Schedule, Tickets

National Indoor Arena, NIA, Birmingham, UK, 4-9 March

 

All England badminton

This may seem like an unusual choice to include in a section that features iconic global sporting events like marathon majors, Grand Prix and cup finals, but I have to confess that badminton was one of the first sports I took a real interest in (after football of course - I was kicking a ball around pretty much as soon as I could stand unaided!) and I actually played to a decent standard throughout my school and college days, and even have a couple of trophies to show for my efforts.

So that's why I have something of a soft spot for this noble game, and as the annual All England Open Championship is not only one of the most prestigious in the sport but also rather conveniently located in the UK then it's one I always like to take an interest in.

In historical terms, this is actually one of the oldest sporting tournaments you'll find anywhere, especially for such a relatively minority sport. The All England Open Championhsip, as it is now formally known, can actually trace its roots right back to 1899, with only small breaks for the slight inconvenience caused by 2 world wars.

Current sponsors Yonex have been associated with the event since 1984 so are pretty much synonymous with it now, while the current venue of the National Indoor Arena, or NIA, in Birmingham has been its home since 1994. In recent years the Chinese participants have tended to dominate the prizes, although you can also expect good showings from the South Korean and Malaysian players.

Event Schedule

 

The tournament takes place over 6 days during March, running from the 4th to the 9th. We'll add the schedule of play here as soon as it's confirmed.

The order of play for the 2014 event is now available online here:

Streaming, TV Coverage, Live Scores & Video

 

The coverage of the tournament has in previous years been patchy at best, but with the growth of the internet and online streaming, then there are more and more opportunities to watch the action becoming available. In particular, the excellent Badminton World site provides extensive coverage, both live and delayed:

There is also some coverage scheduled for Sky Sports this year, although this will of course require a subscription - more details here:

There is also a live score service available via the official site:
