The Orleans Masters of badminton welcomed you again this year at the Palais des Sports in Orleans from March 29th to April 3rd for its 28th edition.
It is with pleasure that the organizing committee accompanied by its 220 volunteers welcomed nearly 8000 spectators throughout the week. Between passionate and curious, some of them came in number thanks to their badminton club partner of the tournament (Find them here). Indeed, the Orleans Masters offers, to all badminton clubs who wish, advantages to have the opportunity to attend the matches.
Not only the public enjoyed the games. This year it is not less than 3000 schoolchildren who could attend the matches. They also took advantage of the various activities offered at the brand new "Badminton Village" located at the Pasteur Park.
The "Village by Orleans Masters" opened its doors for the first time this year, 200m from the competition courts. Air Badminton, photo exhibition and awareness stands were proposed throughout the week.
The Orleans Masters is also very well followed on Youtube. This year 1 794 700 viewers have watched the tournament from all over the world. This makes the tournament one of the most watched Orléans events in the world. You can watch all the matches in streaming on Youtube.
All the organization of this event is possible each year thanks to the volunteers who give their time but also thanks to the partners who accompany us and renew their confidence (for several years for some) at each edition (Find them here). Some of them were present in the corridors of the Palais des Sports as exhibitors. While others attended the games or had lunch or dinner at the restaurant "Le Masters". The restaurant "Le Masters" on the second floor of the Palais des Sports has been offering exceptional meals for several editions.
And of course without forgetting the 268 players from all over the world who are the real stars of this event. They could express themselves on the courts and show their best badminton.
The 29th edition is already being prepared. The Orléans Masters will be back in 2023 with new offers that we can't wait for you to discover.
