Since the 1990s, Para Badminton has been increasingly practiced and competed. With a history of 10 world championships, Badminton will be included as an official sport in the Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020. Para Badminton is open for athletes with physical impairments. The governing body for Para-Badminton and all related internationals events is Badminton World Federation (BWF), which is recognized by the International Paralympic Committee (IPC).
Similar to Badminton in the Olympics, Para Badminton is played on a court that is separated into half by a net. A shuttlecock will be passed across the net from one side to another by the players using a racket. Points are scored by the players when the shuttlecock is struck, and it lands on the opposite side of the court.
For Badminton, the sports classes can be found here.
Classes WH1, WH2 and SL3 play half-court in singles events and full-court in double events. The remaining three categories play full-court in all events.
