Badminton

The attention on para badminton is rising as it will become an official Paralympic sport starting from the 2020 Tokyo Games. There will be two events: 'wheelchair' for athletes with spinal cord injuries and other impairments, and 'standing' for athletes with functional impairments. Players are classified by type and level of their disability, and compete within their classification. Special game rules are applied to wheelchair players such as using half a court.
