One of the children said: “We are able to play longer in the open and it’s fun.”
With the positive outcome of this initiative, FIBAD is looking to continue promoting Shuttle Time and AirBadminton in tandem and organise demonstrations in different schools and public spaces such as parks and beaches.
“It’s a discovery for us, AirBadminton will fluidify the game in our schools which don’t have a room”. – Arnaud Gasa (Chair of the Journalists of Sports Radios of Ivory Coast)
“We hope you’ll allow other children inland to know AirBadminton, which is a solution for lack of indoor facilities.” – Yapi Pepin (National Olympic Committee of Ivory Coast Technical Adviser)
“The children came out of this day happy because despite the presence of wind, they were able to practice their passion in the open air. We will rely on Airbadminton to boost the activities of Shuttle Time.” – Zolobé Honoré (FIBAD President of Ivory Coast)
