Yonex aims to encourage and spread the joy of sport through its wide range of products, which are suitable for all ranges of players from amateurs to professionals. Yonex believes that sport is for everyone to enjoy at every level” said Paul Staudzs from Yonex Canada.
“As a global company, Yonex feels that it is the distinct obligation to give something back to society. Yonex demonstrates social responsibility through its involvement in a number of campaigns designed to positively impact and help educate others on the health benefits of sport” he continued.
“We look forward to having the Canadian para badminton players represent Canada and our company in the home of Yonex, at the 2020 Para Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan.”
Badminton Canada believes Yonex Canada is the perfect fit as both share similar goals and aspirations from not only a sporting perspective but encouraging high quality lifestyles.
Badminton Canada’s Executive Director Joe Morissette was quoted saying “We are pleased to partner with Yonex Canada again as they play a major role in supporting our para athletes on their journey to the 2020 Paralympics in Tokyo”
