Congratulations to them all ! HK Vittinghus and Jan O Jorgensen from Denmark will be hoping to get the title this net week end in Veljen. Good luck to them both.
A special farewell was given to Judith Meulendijks during the Dutch National Championships for her contribution to the sport there – we can only aknowledge this award as Judith is truly a great shuttler and a great Ambassador. Pi Hongyan, Solibad’s Global Ambassador was not in St Brieuc to fight for her title as she retired last year from International competition, but her image was shown live in the Stadium, wishing the two finalists of the women’s singles good luck.

2013 should bring a lot of excitement, with a recruitment drive scheduled for the early days of January. Then, on April 27th, we will have the second edition of “One Night With Stars” featring Peter Gade, Nathan Robertson, Wong Choong Hann, Suzanne Rayappan, Pi Hongyan and other famous guests, including some surprises for the spectators of the Queue D’Avre Hall in Geneva. June 29th is most likely to be the date for our Solibad Day in 2013, with Flashmobs all around the world, but also other ideas to promote the foundation and raise funds.

Solibad relies on every member of the social network to create a sustainable action.
Badminton gear manufacturers, brands and distributors have a decisive role regarding the success of our projects. So do companies who are interested in this unique concept in the world of sport. There are some great opportunities for local and global partnerships, with benefits for each party.
We also support a variety of projects and initiatives, not exclusively related to badminton.
Here’s how corporate partners, institutions and communities can help:
- Financial donations
- Material goods donations (tailored to meet specific objectives. I.e.: our computer project for Bali’s Orphanage)
- Promotional support (free t-shirts, discounted prints, etc.)
Your help is extremely valuable to us. We hope it will blossom into a long-term partnership, with a common humanist perspective!
