In the exciting lead-up to one of the richest Superseries tournament in the world which happens to be the XIAMENAIR Australian Badminton Open, Badminton Australia is sponsoring badminton clinics for primary and high school students. These clinics can be organised on school premises during PE time.


The culmination of the XMABO School Programme is a school excursion to the XIAMENAIR Australian Open tournament at Sydney Olympic Park Sports Centre during the week starting 7 June. Students will get the opportunity to watch the world's best shuttlers test their skills in one of the last major events before the 2016 Rio Olympics. More than 300 top-ranking players from 30 countries will participate in the tournament.


Schools that will be coming along to cheer on the Aussies at the XMABO include:

  • Ebenezer Public school 
  • Maraylya Public School
  • MLC School Burwood
