Para Badminton

11th ASEAN Para Games

ABOUT THIS EVENT

Para badminton is not much different from badminton in general. However, players who compete in wheelchairs fall under the Sport class of “WH”, and athletes who stand while competing, and use their lower limb or upper limb falls under the prefix “SL”, and “SU” respectively.

Badminton for athletes with disabilities consists of the same rules and regulations set forth by the Badminton World Federation (BWF) with a few modifications added in consideration of specific physical disabilities. Singles matches for players in wheelchairs are limited to one half of the court due to limited reach, but doubles matches use the full court as with regular badminton.

In wheelchair badminton, players must ensure that some part of his torso is in contact with the seat of the wheelchair when striking. The player’s feet should maintain contact with the foothold while the shuttlecock is in play and must not come in contact with the floor. In addition, the foothold propping up the player’s feet cannot come in contact with the floor while the shuttlecock is in play.

Players cannot use their legs for support, and are prohibited from using their hands to prop up their body right before or during contact with the shuttlecock.
