The Badminton Pan Am (BPA) is the governing body for the sport of badminton in the Americas and is recognized as such by the Badminton World Federation.

The mission of the Badminton Pan Am includes promoting the sport, organizing regional tournaments, certifying referees and umpires, maintaining a set of unified rules, and providing a forum for member nations. There are 33 member associations.[1]

The BPA also publishes a magazine called The Smash.

Following a general meeting held in Campinas, Brazil back in November, 2006, the confederation decided to change the name from Pan American Badminton Confederation to Badminton Pan Am.
