For the first time the Badminton World Federation organised the World Championships for players with and without impairments at the same time at the same venue: the TOTAL BWF WORLD (PARA-)BADMINTON CHAMPIONSHIPS in Basel/Switzerland.

Though even more Ugandan players had qualified, only five could travel to Basel due to financial constraints.
