MBA's Para-Badminton Program
Badminton has officially been accepted into the 2020 Paralympics in Tokyo, Japan.
This is an exciting for Para-Badminton in Canada as all of the Provinces and Territories try to establish para programming.
While Para-Badminton includes two wheelchair classes (WH 1 and WH 2) it also includes two Standing Lower Body (SL 3 and SL 4) Standing Upper Body (SU 5) and Short Stature (SS 6) classes.
Some sample videos of Para-Badminton from BWF (Badminton World Federation):

The Manitoba Badminton Association will be integrating the para-programs with our other programs such as Developmental Winter Programs, Identified Player Program, Access Program and High Performance Program.
