Help make Badminton available to all!

Make Badminton Available to All!

Here is an exciting opportunity to express your views on how to make Badminton more available to blind and partially sighted individuals!

Badminton England Needs You

 Original article in a BBS Newsletter

As part of its Diversity and Inclusion campaign, Badminton England is undertaking a study aimed at understanding the barriers to play and improving the accessibility of the sport.

British Blind Sport is working closely with Badminton England to explore the possibilities within the sport and ensure that visually impaired people have the opportunity to participate. To do this, we need to understand your experiences, challenges and needs.

The survey will allow Badminton England to gain further insight into how they can make meaningful changes to support under-represented groups in their sport.

Everyone is welcome to complete the Diversity & Inclusion survey and share their experiences. All responses will remain confidential.

Badminton England Diversity & Inclusion Consultation

Badminton England – Inclusion for all video  Below

“At Badminton England we strongly believe that everyone should be able to access and enjoy our sport regardless of their gender, race, disability, sexual orientation, background or circumstances.

We are committed to embedding inclusive practice across badminton and passionate that we are stronger together when trying to achieve this aim.

Covid-19 has undoubtedly affected us all with the latest Government announcements and restrictions meaning we cannot currently get on court to play. Recently published Sport England research however, found that disabled people, people with long-term health conditions and people from Black, Asian and other minority ethnic groups have been disproportionately impacted.

So, we believe now is the time to come together as a sport – through learning, understanding and practice – to demonstrate our desire to be a sport for all. We commit to improving our understanding of experiences and removing barriers to play, because we know that we are a community that is stronger together.”

How To Get Involved

They have also launched the Badminton England Inclusion Hub, a large resource to help clubs and sessions be more inclusive. Finally, Badminton England encourages you to share your successes and stories with the #StrongerTogether hashtag on Social Media.

By taking just 10 minutes to complete a short survey, you will be playing a crucial part in progress and you will be making your mark on future treatments and sight saving solutions.

We would be extremely grateful if you would please take this version of the survey.
