MIX & MATCH Badminton Challenge, brought to you by The Legends’ Vision, kicked off its first event in Japan on November 29th.

MIX & MATCH Badminton Challenge is a never-before-seen badminton format launched by the Legends’ Vision. This innovative style employs a new “flight” system which allows a team of 6 players to switch freely between points.
