More than 5,400 children between 6 and 12 years old participated in the project. There was a total of six badminton workshops which were organised in Manuel Belgrano’ Park, Avellaneda Park, Chacabuco Park, Pomar Sport Center, Sarmiento and Colegiales Sport Center.
The project had positive feedback from the teachers, directors of the parks and the children about how nice and fun badminton is.

Indirectly, the National Federation had the chance to broaden the scope of action and develop badminton in Argentina.
