Badminton can be accessed at most local leisure centres with a sports hall. Sports halls commonly have badminton court markings, nets and posts, and courts can be booked by the general public. To find an accessible venue take a look at those signed up to the Inclusive Fitness Initiative (IFI).
There are also numerous badminton clubs across England that offer badminton inclusive of players with any disability or impairment, and a small number of wheelchair specific badminton clubs, have a look at the Badminton England website for details.
From a safety point of view, it is essential that players have sports wheelchairs with rear and front stabilisers in order to prevent chairs from tipping backwards. No other adapted badminton equipment is required.
