Last year in 2022, the event was a huge success due to the amazing support from Ottawa Tourism, the University of Ottawa and the many volunteers who gave their time during the competition. "I am proud that Badminton Canada and the City of Ottawa was selected by the Badminton World Federation to host the 2023 YONEX Canada Para-Badminton International” stated Executive Director, Jordan Bridal. “Hosting the highest level of para badminton offered in the world goes with our mission of being a leading sport for inclusivity and fair play. With over 200 athletes set to be in attendance, we look forward to welcoming all for another fantastic event this summer. As always this event would not be possible without the generous support from our partners at YONEX Canada, Government of Canada and Ottawa Tourism. "
Ottawa Tourism is again a driving force behind the delivery of the event and Badminton Canada is thankful for their generous and professional assistance with hosting. "Ottawa Tourism is very pleased to see such an impressive para sporting event return to our city" said Michael Crockatt, President & CEO of Ottawa Tourism, "and we are proud partners in welcoming international athletes, coaching staff, familes and fans toour beautiful city."
