The BWF announced in April that it will support the participation of players going to this years BWF Para-Badminton World Championships to be hosted in Dortmund 5 -10 November 2013.
The aim of the participation grant is to increase participation – more players – more countries represented.
The BWF has sent details directly to Para-Badminton contacts in BWF Members, National Paralympic Committees and disability sports organisations recognized by the BWF. The participation grant will assist organisations who are sending teams of players to pay for travel and accommodation for their players. This is a one-time opportunity to access this grant.
The amount available per team from Oceania, Africa, Asia and Pan America is significant – up to USD$7000 for 10 players or more. Organisations from Europe (except the host nation Germany) who send players will receive a much smaller amount because the distances are much less. Players from the host country Germany, are not eligible to for the participation grants programme.
There are terms and conditions that national bodies must meet when applying for the grant. See the memo below and the application form.
