The aim of this study was to determine the reaction times of physically disabled International badminton players and to analyze the effects of badminton on their reaction times. The study was based on physically handicapped badminton players from different countries (Turkey, France, Spain, Russia, Poland, Thailand, India, Bulgaria, and England) who attended 3rd International Enes-Cup Physically Disabled Badminton Tournament (experiment, n=39, 15 females-24 males), and physically handicapped individuals who do not deal with any sports (control, n=21, 9 females-12 males), totally 60 participants. Forming the research group, the players were divided into two groups according to the disability classification of the International Paralympic Committee, SL-3, SL-4, SU-5 (playing on foot, n=23), and WH-1, WH-2 (playing on wheelchairs, n=12). At the end of the study, it was determined that there was a statistically significant difference in between the visual-audial reaction times of the male players compared to male control group, and in between visual reaction times of the female players compared to female control group (p<0.05). As a conclusion, it was detected that the reaction times of both male and female players were lower (better) than the control group.
