Some of us may think that badminton is just a sport or game that can be played for fun, exercise, socialisation, entertainment or competition. And while playing has many benefits, unless you're actually coaching or teaching others to play, they only seem to be for that one person who is on the court.

That's why I want to introduce Raphael Sachetat, a badminton enthusiast like you and me.

He saw how badminton can have a much larger impact on the world than what most of us think. And thus, he founded Solibad - "Badminton Without Borders". 

It's a badminton charity where Raphael and the Solibad team travel all around the world to introduce our sport to those who are far less fortunate. Their hard work brings smiles to the faces of many and is the true symbol of giving back to our beloved sport. 

You would have probably seen may of the world's best badminton players promote Solibad with a logo on their shirts, posts of social media or appearances in their projects - free of charge. Many even donate money, clothing and other memorabilia to raise money for Solibad. The generosity of these players truly shows the great work that the Solibad team are doing.

Episode 13 of The Badminton Podcast is all about the Solibad program, how it has impacted others and how you can contribute to such an important cause.

Here's direct access to the episode itself:
