Para Badminton

Badminton and Para badminton both fall under the umbrella of the BWF, in accordance with our “One Sport – One Team” philosophy.  Badminton is a sport for all, meaning that it is accessible to people with a physical impairment.  Para badminton will debut as a Paralympic sport in the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.

The BWF provides a variety of resources and support, which can be accessed by Continental Confederations, Member Associations and National Paralympic Committees. Support includes the following areas:

  • Coach Development
  • Classifier Development
  • Player Education
  • Equipment Support
  • Female Participation Grants
  • Research in Para badminton
