Dear lovers of Techminton!

I am truly honored to greet and convey my sincerest gratitude to all the lovers of Techminton and interested parties of sports in various domains who have always provided their affection towards Techminton.

Techminton pursued researches on the equipment and court sizes in order to reduce physical burden on the players as well as the flight path of the shuttlecock used in this sport through several years of researches and actual playing of the games.

Techminton was the name given to the sport perfected as the results of such efforts along with the establishment of the overall game rules of Techminton by optimizing the shuttlecock, racket and court size for the game.

Accordingly, we declare to the world that Korea is the birthplace and founding country of a new sport, Techminton.
In addition, we are endeavoring to widely propagate and activate Techminton as school sport and daily life sport that anyone can participate in.

Furthermore, we seek to enhance the health and vitality of all the people of the world as well as offer new spectator game by propagating Techminton to the entire world, and have the status of Korea as the birthplace of Techminton be known throughout the world through harmonization and interaction with each other by means of new encounters.

Only the countries with the capabilities to lead in the cultural and sports industries will be able to catapult into the status of advanced countries in the 21st century.

By activating Techminton in Korea as the founding country, and then advancing Techminton as a new sport industry by propagating in throughout the rest of the world, we shall cultivate this sport as a new growth engine of Korea in order to create new source of income generation for our next generation.

Accordingly, we seek the continued interest and support of all the interested parties of sports industry and general public in order for Techminton to be successfully settled in Korea and eventually expand into the world.

We shall continue to put ardent efforts until the day the 1st World Techminton Tournament is held.
