What is Para-Badminton?

There are many national federations, clubs and associations around the world who are involved in badminton training and competition for people with a disability. BWF promotes a “one sport – one team” philosophy – badminton and Para-Badminton.

Para-Badminton players compete in singles (men / women), doubles (men/women) and mixed doubles. Players are classified into “Sport Classes” to ensure fairness in competition. In para-badminton there are 6 Sport Classes.

- Wheelchair Sport Classes - WH 1 and WH 2
- Standing Sport Classes - SL 3, SL 4 and SU 5
- Short Stature Sport Class - SS 6

Classification is a central activity in Paralympic sports. The BWF has Classification Regulations which comply with the IPC Classification Code and International Standards.
