Badminton at the 2024 Paris Olympics
What can we expect from Badminton at the 2024 Paris Olympics? Badminton debuted as a demonstration sport at the 1972 Munich Olympic Games. It was not formally placed on the Olympic program until the 1992 Games in Barcelona, featuring men’s and women’s singles and doubles events. The mixed doubles event debuted in the Atlanta Olympic Games in 1996. The number of events has been constant since then.
When will the tournament take place?
The badminton competitions at the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris are set to take place at Porte de la Chapelle Arena from July 27 to August 5, 2024. At these Games, 172 badminton players, equally divided between men and women, will participate in five medal events (two per gender and one mixed), the same number as in previous editions.
About the Arena
The new Porte de la Chapelle Arena is intended to have a long-term impact by catering to the requirements of local communities. This arena can also hold 8,000 people for basketball games and 9,000 for concerts.
Porte de La Chapelle will have an eco-friendly design, with flora covering 80% of the structure to fit harmoniously with its surroundings. The multi-purpose arena at Porte de la Chapelle will launch reconstruction work in the 18th arrondissement of Paris.
The arena’s modular architecture will be used during the Games because the stadium will host two separate sports one after the other during both the Olympics (badminton and rhythmic gymnastics) and the Paralympics (para badminton and para powerlifting events).
