What is Para-Badminton?

A growing sport in Britain, disability badminton is popular because of its level of inclusion. Many types of disabilities can play either for fun or competitively and disabled players can play alongside those who are able bodied.

Para-Badminton, like other para-sports, uses a classification system to ensure that players with a similar level of impairment compete against each other.

There are a total of 6 classes recognised by the BWF:

  • 2 Wheelchair sport classes ( WH1, WH2)
  • 3 Standing sport classes (SL3, SL4, SU5)
  • 1 Short stature sport class (SS6)

Involvement

Disability badminton caters for all kinds of disabilities from people in wheelchairs, those with hearing impairments or learning difficulties to dwarfs and amputees.

Facts

  • Para-Badminton will debut in the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games

Campaigns

Coaching Can

Coaching has long been considered to be about the development of skill in a sport. It has been about acquiring, honing and transferring these skills in the pursuit of athletic achievement.
