On August 21, all the participants – including children and teachers – arrived at the St. Jakobshalle Stadium to watch the World Championships. Swiss Badminton had prepared a Shuttle Time booth where the children played some games and participated in a badminton quiz.
Overall, the activity experienced a successful launch (over 1200 free tickets were given to children). Swiss Badminton has started organising Shuttle Time Cup 2.0 aiming to increase badminton’s presence even further in Swiss schools.
“Shuttle Time is a fundamental branch of our federation. As the school is a highly important part of Switzerland’s culture, it is crucial to bring badminton right into them with an excellent image. With BWF’s Shuttle Time, we have the perfect tool to spread a great reputation of our sport, whether it’s in schools or other parts.” – Thomas Heiniger, ST National Coordinator of Switzerland.
