VICTOR Oceania Para Badminton Championships Melbourne July 2022

Badminton Australia is pleased to share the news that the VICTOR Oceania Para Badminton Championships 2022 will be taking place at the Melbourne Sports and Aquatics Centre from Friday 29 – Sunday 31 July 2022.


The Continental Para Badminton Championships last took place in 2020 in Ballarat, alongside the able-bodied Championships. Following the complications of the COVID-19 pandemic, neither tournament has been able to take place since. However, with the Australian government easing restrictions into the country, Badminton Oceania (in partnership with Badminton Victoria) are seizing the opportunity to stage the third Para badminton Continental Championships which, under the new BWF Para Badminton tournament structure, will become a Grade 3 tournament.


Badminton Oceania welcomes all members to enter players to compete in what is anticipated to be one of the largest Continental Para Badminton Championships to date. All classifications will be included in the tournament:


  • Wheelchair 1 (WH 1)
  • Wheelchair 2 (WH 2)
  • Standing Lower (SL 3)
  • Standing Lower (SL 4)
  • Standing Upper (SU 5)
  • Short Stature (SH 6)


“We hope that players involved in national Para badminton programmes across Oceania will participate in these Championships to gain experience and valuable world ranking points as they look to play in international tournaments later in the year”, says Badminton Oceania Secretary General, Julie Carrel.
