Para Badminton Classification
Prior to the Oceania Championships in Mandurah, we three Australian’s, along with our Badminton Australia GM Participation & Para, Clare Walker, attended the BWF Level 1 classification training with support from Badminton Oceania. They took part in a theory session, followed by practical and on court sessions during the tournament. A great learning experience for David Zhao (VIC), Abbie Rothery (VIC) and Justin Yu (NSW).
Regular tournament physiotherapist and para badminton classifier, Pinakin Godse, is off to Dubai with the support of Badminton Oceania and Badminton Australia to complete BWF Level 2 Classifier Training, the highest level of training internationally.
Pinakin will be part of a team of people creating a National Level classifier curriculum which will be delivered prior to the Para Badminton Nationals which take place in Altona, VIC 3-5 May 2024. For more information about Para Badminton Classification please visit www.badminton.org.au/para/
