Have a flick through the latest edition of the BEC Magazine which looks back at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, gives you everything about Para badminton’s successful debut at the Paralympics and will get you excited for the 2021 European U17 Championships in Slovenia which is already underway.

The BEC Magazine reviews the Tokyo 2020 Olympics in numbers. Did you know that the longest rally had 101 shots? Also, find out how players trained at the Centre of Excellence before the Olympics. Links to the videos are found inside.  

Play our True or False game to test your badminton knowledge while learning about the European U17 ‘wonderkids’ who saw success at a young age to then went on to reach the stars. Who will be our new Viktor Axelsen or Carolina Marin in lovely Slovenia? 

The 2021 European U17 Championships takes place 3 to 12 September.

Win prizes too! There is a chance to win a signed Brice Leverdez shirt.
