This Saturday, the whole day, the Coubertin complex of Noyelles Godault (62) will vibrate to the rhythm of the wheels exchanged between disabled and non disabled people.
The event, coordinated by the French Badminton Federation (FFBaD), Ligue Hauts de France, Committee 62 and a local club BADTTSM (Badminton Tennis Table Saint Martin) is the second day of animation of such a kind of activities, after the first one organized in Marseille the last 7th February.
Discovering badminton and disability awareness.
Concretely, it is a proposal of adapting badminton practice to a public in a situation of handicap. This journey will be also a place for exchange and awareness of disability, a moment of sharing this awareness above all, between non disabled people.
Saturday, a total amount of twenty people with disabilities are expected to discover badminton. They will play with non disabled ones, including fifteen children enrolled at the local club. The latter will be made aware of disability through the exchanges they may have with people with disabilities, but also through a sensitization workshop to practice wheelchair badminton. The afternoon will be devoted to friendly meetings and the organization of a mini-tournament.
