“One Sport – One Team”
Para badminton adapts the rules and court of Badminton for people with a physical disability.
Aligned with the Badminton World Federation's (BWF) "One Sport – One Team" philosophy, Para badminton will debut as a Paralympic sport in the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.
Para badminton players are grouped to compete in one of six Sport Classes to ensure fair and safe competition. The grouping is carried out by trained classifiers, who evaluate players and determine their sport class and sport class status for play in tournaments.
Where to play
Because Para badminton uses a badminton court, you can play at most indoor sports centres!
Badminton Victoria is working with community partners and our member clubs, associations and venues to develop a range of Para badminton programs throughout the state.
