Obesity, diabetes and other non-communicable diseases are a serious problem in Tonga and badminton offers a game that, at entry-level at least, doesn’t require high levels of fitness.

Badminton is expanding its reach in the Pacific through the Australian Government’s Pacific Sports Partnerships program.
