Parallel Play is a project to support the inclusion of people with disabilities, by allowing them to become champions in the accessible sport of badminton. The idea is to open up training groups for athletes with different disabilities in existing badminton clubs. The long-term goal is to have athletes qualified for the Paralympic Games and Special Olympics. To date, the project has established five training groups in three cities; been part of five camps; and secured four medals at its first international competition in Helsinki.
