The facilities of UPNFM, CONDEPOR, and the Honduran Olympic Committee provided an ideal environment for learning and practicing badminton, ensuring that participants received high-quality training. The course aimed to train 35 individuals who will replicate the acquired knowledge in their respective public and private institutions, targeting 16 educational centers and 200 students practicing
badminton in 2024. Representatives from the departments of Colón, El Paraíso, and Francisco Morazán participated.

During the course, meetings were held with the Honduran Olympic Committee, Special Olympics Honduras, and CONDEPOR to elevate the sport’s profile and promote its widespread practice in the country. The teachers who participated in the course will be responsible for multiplying what they learned in their hometowns, promoting badminton in their communities.

Following the Strategic Plan of the Honduran Badminton Federation (FENABADH) and the guidelines of the COH, it is expected that soon, teams will be formed, competitions will be held, and preparations will be made to participate in regional badminton tournaments as well as the Central American and Caribbean Games. The course also included the participation of Special Olympics Honduras.

Congratulations to the Honduras Badminton Federation!
