Paraplume

Paraplume is Solibad’s newest project, based in France, and vows to bring down the barrier between the disabled and non-disabled people, using Badminton as a tool to do so.

The pilot-project is based in a small city of Britanny, Ploemeur, where three groups are working hand in hand to make this happen. A badminton club, an association for disabled people, and a group that welcomes people with disabilities. The project is to have all three groups work together to provide badminton sessions on a regular basis with, in order to bring down the break down barriers and bring together these two worlds on the same court.

On a longer term basis, the idea is to get more clubs and local groups to work together and have regular sessions of badminton, mixing both worlds to allow a better understanding, a better communication between the two, with badminton as a tool.
