“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 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
