Hadiah Uang Bulu Tangkis (Badminton Prize Money)

Bulu tangkis adalah salah satu olahraga paling populer di dunia. BWF sendiri mengonfirmasi bahwa ada lebih dari 300 juta orang di seluruh dunia yang bermain bulu tangkis secara reguler. Meski demikian, persebaran peta perkembangan bulu tangkis masih belum merata.

Bulu tangkis menjadi olahraga yang sangat populer di kawasan Asia Tenggara dan Asia Timur. Bila digabungkan, kedua wilayah ini memiliki penduduk lebih dari 2 miliar jiwa. Satu lagi kawasan padat penduduk di mana bulu tangkis populer adalah Asia Selatan, khususnya India.

Negara-negara di tiga kawasan di atas umumnya negara dengan perekonomian berkembang. Bulu tangkis yang bisa dibilang sebagai olahraga yang ekonomis namun seru, sangat digemari warga dari berbagai tingkat golongan. Tak heran jika banyak pemain kelas dunia yang lahir dari kawasan itu, seperti Lin Dan (China), Lee Chong Wei (Malaysia), dan Taufik Hidayat (Indonesia).

Berbicara mengenai hadiah uang bulu tangkis, sebetulnya itu tergolong besar bagi penduduk di negara-negara berkembang. Namun bagi standar negara-negara maju seperti di Eropa dan Amerika Utara, hadiah yang ditawarkan bulu tangkis sangat kecil, apalagi jika dibandingkan dengan tenis yang sangat populer di dua kawasan itu.

Sebelum pandemi yang melanda dunia sejak awal tahun 2020 (berarti pada tahun 2019), BWF (Federasi Bulu Tangkis Dunia), menyelenggarakan semua acara sesuai jadwal. Serta tidak ada pengurangan hadiah seperti yang terjadi pada kalender 2020 dan 2021.

Total hadiah uang yang ditawarkan BWF selama musim 2019 mencapai angka sekitar 15,2 juta dolar Amerika (sekitar 218 miliar rupiah). Ini angka yang tidak sedikit, tapi sangat sedikit jika dibandingkan dengan tenis menawarkan hadiah ratusan juta dolar per tahun.

English version

Badminton is one of the most popular sports in the world. BWF confirms that there are more than 300 million people around the world playing badminton regularly. However, the distribution of badminton development maps is still not evenly distributed.

Badminton is a very popular sport in Southeast Asia and East Asia. When combined, these two regions have a population of more than 2 billion people. Another densely populated area where badminton is popular is South Asia, particularly India.

The countries in the three regions above are generally developing economies. Badminton, which can be regarded as an economical but fun sport, is very popular with people from various levels of class. No wonder there are many world-class players born from the region, such as Lin Dan (China), Lee Chong Wei (Malaysia), and Taufik Hidayat (Indonesia).

Talking about badminton prize money, it’s actually quite big for people in developing countries. However, by the standards of developed countries such as in Europe and North America, the prizes offered by badminton are very small, especially when compared to tennis which is very popular in those two regions.

Before the pandemic that hit the world since the beginning of 2020, BWF (Badminton World Federation), organized all events as scheduled. And there is no reduction in prizes as happened in the 2020 and 2021 calendars.

The total prize money offered by BWF during the 2019 season reached around 15.2 million US dollars (see above tables). This is not a small number, but very little when compared to tennis offering prizes of hundreds of millions of dollars per year.
