All attendees left the training with a badminton starter kit to further help in launching this new and exciting sport.
The training also attracted representatives from USA Badminton out of Miami and a researcher from Mississippi State University who is interested in starting a Unified Badminton Program. Thanks to the Badminton World Federation, ESPN and Jon-Paul St. Germain from Special Olympics HQ for their support of the training.
Congratulation to all participants and looking forward for more Shuttle Time activities in USA.
