“Solibad Day” aims at promoting Solibad’s actions, by creating “happenings” all around the world. A unique Concept
For the past two years, we have created a concept of worldwide flashmobs. On September 29th 2012, more than 100 cities joined the movement in unity – a World record.

Solibad Day 2014
June 28th 2014
THE THEME – “Seven Letters, One Wor(l)d”.
The idea is to show Solibad’s support all around the world, by creating the seven letters of the word “SOLIBAD”, in different ways. It can be human letters. It can be balloons. It can be.. anything. Either just one letter, or all letters one by one, or the whole word.
There is, as you can see, a twist with the motto. Solibad makes one word, but also makes one worLd (hence the different colour for the “L” in the logo)
We need creativity. The more original, the better. You can use badminton items (shuttles, rackets, nets, etc). The place you do it is also important – the more symbolic of your country, the better. Or you can use tradition costumes. Anyways, it’s all yours to create and have fun.
The advantage of this theme is that it’s simple, and you can do it even if there are only few of you. But if there are many people, it’s even better !
The idea is to send a High Resolution photograph of your SOLIBAD LETTER(S) the very same day of the event, so that we can compile them all the same evening and send it to the media very quickly. It will have a bigger impact. Find a spot where you can take the picture from above ideally.
The Date : June 28th 2014 !
Let’s make it happen…

Solibad Day 2013
This year’s Solibad Day will be held on June 29th 2013. The Theme is “Badminton Without Borders”, with different ways of celebrating the day, everyone around the planet.
THE THEME – “Badminton without Borders”
This year, we would like to give you more space, more creativity to celebrate Solibad Day. The theme will be “Badminton Without Borders”. This can be interpreted in different ways.
1. No Borders = Solidarity
It can mean that badminton helps go beyond your own borders – in the sense of solidarity. This means that you can prepare an event to raise funds
2. No Borders = No limits (to your creativity)
It can be interpreted in a different way – as in the sense of breaking the rules, the limits of creativity (within staying out of danger, of course). This means you can either perform a Flashmob (Free choreography which is inspired by our values or the game of badminton!), but it also means that you can video record yourselves playing in odd situation/places/disguises.
Here are some ideas of what you can do on June 29th 2013:
1. If you would rather raise funds:
- Organize a local tournament
- Organize an exhibition match (with your local Ambassador or former top players with paying fees
- Organize a local tournament with entry fees (badminton bonanza, etc).
- Organize a badminton fashion show
- Organize a Solibad Party (get a place for free and make people pay to get in and for drinks/snacks)
2. If you would rather promote/stand out for Solibad’s values
- Organize a flashmob (like the previous years) – You will do your own choreography (the more original, the better, and don’t forget to add a local flavor to it (disguisement, famous places in your country, etc)
- Organize a “happening” : something striking that draws attention to our values
- Play badminton in crowded streets , in funny places, in odd situations, in odd clothing (traditionnal) and record it on video.
IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER :
- Wear Solibad colours (either the rainbow colours as on our logo, or wear clothing matching your continent : Blue for Europe, Yellow or light Orange for Asia/Middle east, Red for Americas, Green for Oceania, Purple or Dark blue for Africa)
- Do not put yourself or anybody else in danger during Solibad Day – you are under your own responsibility

- Send us the Video as soon as possible after the event (the event has to be on Saturday June 29th everywhere)
