It was an exceptional day filled with insights, eye-catching demonstrations, and social interactions aimed at exploring the possibilities and beauty of Para badminton. 

The day was marked by an inspiring lecture from Milan Barbir, the Head Coach of the Serbian National Team, underlining Para badminton's power to unite and support individuals with disabilities in sports. Participants enjoyed a hands-on experience in Para badminton's dynamic world through an interactive session led by national team coach Nikola Mijačić and coaches from the Badminton Club Belgrade.
