90 para-badminton players (44 male and 46 female) will experience their first ever Summer Paralympic Games when these para-athletes qualify and earn a ticket to Tokyo. Para-badminton was chosen to be part of the Paralympic Programme in October 2014 and since then, the sport has grown tremendously.

Brian Agerbak, General Secretary at Badminton Europe ´We are pleased that the long wait for para-badminton's events programme for the 2020 Paralympics is finally over. We should be satisfied with the number of para-badminton athletes who will be competing in Tokyo. Having the classes confirmed means that the players and their Federations can now start to focus more intensely on qualifying for Tokyo´.
