BBC to Broadcast Badminton for a further two years

We are thrilled to announce that following a spectacular 2024 event, the BBC has confirmed it will continue to broadcast the Mars Badminton Horse Trials for 2025 and 2026.

The renowned Horse Trials, which is staged at The Duke of Beaufort’s Badminton Estate, has been broadcast by the BBC since 1956 and is amongst the broadcaster’s longest standing sporting programmes.

“I always look forward to watching the BBC highlights programme as it captures all that Badminton is comprised of,” comments Event Director Jane Tuckwell. “We are delighted the BBC wish to carry on with their fantastic coverage of the event and look forward to the continuation of this long association.”

The BBC Highlights programme enables the UK audience to watch a round-up of the week’s action along with the final ten showjumping rounds. Live action will continue to be broadcast through Badminton TV each day.
