From the 4th to 6th of October the Ukrainian Badminton Federation held the 5th edition of the BEC Para badminton Event.

During the weekend, coaches and administrators from countries all over Europe participated in the event to learn more about Para badminton.

The coaches learned about how to coach and practice players with different disabilities in the best possible way. The administrators learned about Para badminton in general and how to integrate Para badminton in their own countries.

Some good days in Kiev
Kaity Hall, BWF Course Tutor, was very happy about how the weekend went.

- We had a really good bunch. I am happy with how the weekend went. There was an even split between male and female coaches. The coaches all did well in the assessment, they were all good badminton coaches initially and grasped the ideas of coaching people with a disability quickly, the tutor said.

- The organization was great, and this helped with smooth running of the weekend. Thanks to Badminton Europe and Ukrainian Badminton Federation for organizing again, she added.

A pleasure
Oleksii Dniprov, President of the Ukrainian Badminton Federation, had this to say about the Para badminton Event:

- Hosting the Para badminton Event was a pleasure and a great honor for Ukraine. I’m sure that this event will help with development and popularization of Para badminton in Ukraine. We would definitely be happy to host this event one more time.

- For the countries who have not started Para badminton, my advice for them is not to be afraid of starting. And if needed, we are ready to share our experiences, he mentioned.
