Abstract

The purpose of this article is to examine how disabled sport, expecially Badminton, could be a means of integration and cooperation, and the way the disabled could have the equal possibilities for training in a professional context. According to researchers, Badminton is associated with emotional and psychophysical benefits, as well as with an educative function. Furthermore, participation in Badminton activities facilitates skills and behaviour across various setting.

In conclusion, this study investigates how Badminton is an important activity to improve physical and mental conditions. In fact, it increases self-confidence and removes depression associated with disability.
