Bobby Griffin is the English Para-Badminton National player who also commentates at different tournaments organized by the BWF. He is from Devon, studies sports in the United Kingdom and has been recently selected into the Team GB Paralympic Squad for Tokyo 2020.

He ranks 7th in Men´s Doubles and 12th in Men´s Singles (SL4) in the latest Badminton World Federation (BWF) Rankings – August 2016. Listen to Bobby himself on his badminton journey; how he handles his emotion after losing some important matches and what his hopes are for para-badminton.


Bobby´s love for badminton is so great that he would call himself a ´badminton geek´. Bobby´s passion and persistence in badminton and para-badminton has brought him several interesting experiences which includes travelling around the world for badminton events and meeting world class badminton players, just to name a few.

From a county badminton player to a World Class para-badminton player, we wish Bobby all the best in his badminton journey. Bobby will compete at the 2016 BWF European Para-Badminton Championships (25-30 October) held in Beek, the Netherlands.
