Wheelchair Badminton- About The Sport

Para-Badminton is similar to Wheelchair Tennis in that it is faithful to the rules of the able-bodied sport. Players compete in singles (men / women), doubles (men/women) and mixed doubles. Players are classified into “Sport Classes” to ensure fairness in competition. In para-badminton there are 6 Sport Classes.

– Wheelchair Sport Classes – WH 1 and WH 2

– Standing Sport Classes – SL 3, SL 4 and SU 5

– Short Stature Sport Class – SS 6
