Para-Badminton Overview

Badminton Ireland is committed to creating an inclusive environment for all its members. Badminton is a sport that can be played together by both the disabled and the non-disabled, enhancing social opportunities regardless of differing degrees of ability and disability as well as improving  overall health. 

Para-badminton has multiple classes, see classification details here and 4 nations LD player rating forms here. 

Para-Badminton provides players of different disabilities and backgrounds an opportunity to interact under a common purpose. It is a growing sport with more and more participants taking up the game either socially or competitively. The BWF are working hard to make sure para-badminton becomes a Paralympic Games sport in 2020. There are a total of 6 classes recognised by the BWF:

  •      2 Wheelchair sport classes ( WH1, WH2)
  •      3 Standing sport classes (SL3, SL4, SU5)
  •      1 Short stature sport class (SS6)
