The badminton tournaments at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo will take place in July and August 2020. A total of 172 athletes will compete in five events: men's singles, men's doubles, women's singles, women's doubles, and mixed doubles.[1]


The Olympic qualification period will take place between April 29, 2019 and April 26, 2020, and the Badminton World Federation rankings list, scheduled to publish on April 30, 2020, will be used to allocate spots. Nations can enter a maximum of two players each in the men's and women's singles, if both were ranked in the world's top 16; otherwise, one quota place until the roster of thirty-eight players had been completed. Similar regulations also apply to the players competing in the doubles, as the NOCs can enter a maximum of two pairs if both were ranked in the top eight, while the remaining NOCs were entitled to one until the quota of 16 highest-ranked pairs was filled. Additional rules ensure that each continent is represented in every event, guarantee the host at least one quota place in each individual event, and assign additional quota places if players qualify in multiple events.
