Para Badminton made its Paralympic debut at the Tokyo Paralympics 2020. Badminton took place from 1st September 2021 to 5th September 2021 at Yoyogi National Stadium. Team GB players Daniel Bethell (SL3), Martin Rooke (WH2), Jack Shephard (SH6) and Krysten Coombs (SH6) were representing Team GB.
Dan Bethell won silver, easing his way into the Final. Krysten Coombs won Bronze, navigating out of the group stage and coming from a game down to beat Brazilian Vitor Goncalves Tavares in the Bronze medal match.
Jack Shephard won his last match against Hong Kong's Man Kai Chu with a superb display of skill, grit and determination, but was just not enough points to bring him out of the group stage.
Martin Rooke beat Thailand in his group stage and progressed to the quarter finals, where he made a superb effort against Hong Kong's Chan Ho Yuen.
We are extremely proud of Team GB who was led by Head Coach Richard Morris, along with Mark Beecher (manager), James Boxall (coach) and Sinead Chambers (physio).
The categories and events for the debut of the Paralympics has been announced on the 4th September 2017.
