The sport of badminton is incredibly popular in Indonesia with tens of thousands of participants in contests and competitions each year. Teams from Indonesia have won many international events such as the Thomas Cup, Uber Cup, and All England Championships and they are renowned for the accuracy of their play.

This accuracy is honed at events such as the World Shuttlecock Accuracy Championships in Djakarta each January. Since 1957, badminton players have been assessed in a number of badminton-related disciplines such as serving, smashing, smash returns, and drop shots.
