Badminton Oceania is excited to expand the sport of badminton for persons with a disability across the region, and will be working with key partners to provide a framework which both support and encourages persons with an intellectual disability to participate. Alongside participation, there will be exciting opportunities for those involved in coaching to further develop their knowledge and skills.
In 2018, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between Badminton Oceania, Badminton Asia and Special Olympics Asia Pacific was signed in Bangkok, Thailand, during the BWF Annual General Meeting. Moreover, in January 2022, an extension of MOU was conducted via zoom to celebrate a three-year partnership and commitment between Badminton Oceania and Special Olympics Asia-Pacific. The move builds on another MOU between the BWF and Special Olympics International (signed in 2019) as they developed the Badminton-Special Olympics Global Development Strategy in November 2020.
This provides the opportunity to enhance mutual interest and agree upon a framework for long-term, strategic cooperative support based on common values with all parties recognising and understanding the power of sport and the positive impact sport can have on the lives of people with intellectual disabilities.
