João Matos, the newly appointed BWF Vice President for Europe and Chair of the para-badminton Commission at Badminton Europe was in attendance and has revealed that the meeting went very much to plan.

Focus on gender equity

One of the main actions of the meeting was gender equity. Matos, speaking to Badminton Europe believes that there is more to come from gender equity at the EPC following some changes made in the input.

- The main subjects which were addressed in the conference were, “Tackling the Future” and a presentation by Andrew Parsons (International Paralympic Committee President), followed by a number of workshops, João Matos told Badminton Europe.

- On the General Assembly, alongside with the usual accounts and annual report approval, a lot of input was done on changes to the statues to improve the gender equity on the EPC Executive board, he added.
