What is Para-Badminton?
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)
Disability badminton caters for all kinds of disabilities from people in wheelchairs, those with hearing impairments or learning difficulties to dwarfs and amputees.
- Para-Badminton will debut in the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games
