The 2018 BEC Para-Badminton Event in Vienna, organised by Badminton Europe (BEC) with the Austrian Badminton Association and European Paralympic Committee is now less than ten days away.

The event which takes place in Vienna from 15-18 November, will have a total of 30 participants from 12 Member Associations and it is planned primarily for administrators and beginner coaches in para-badminton.

- BEC is once again organizing a para-badminton event where our members can benefit from the knowledge sharing on to integrate and develop para-badminton in Europe and also about the best practices for coaching wheelchair and standing players. We are very happy with the interest to attend from 12 countries and I am certain it will be a fruitful experience for all of us, expressed João Matos, BEC Vice President, Chair of Para-Badminton Commission.


A fourth for Hall

Kaity Hall, who will be taking the role as Head Coach for the event in Vienna is happy with how the numbers in para-badminton are rising. Hall believes that events such as the para event in Vienna will entice more people into the sport.

- I am looking forward to the BEC Para-Badminton Event in Vienna this year. This will be my fourth year doing a para-badminton coaching course for BEC and each year the enthusiasm and standard of coaches and players increases, Kaity Hall told Badminton Europe.

- It's very exciting to see so many countries participating in these events as para-badminton is an amazing sport covering 6 classes giving opportunities to compete across the board, she added.

- Para-Badminton will make its debut in Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games and hosting events like this gives coaches the drive and experience to find and train new players with the ultimate goal of Paralympics, Hall commented.

Stay tuned on the BEC platforms for more updates from the event in Vienna next week.
