At the grass roots level there is a tremendous interest in the sport of badminton. Participation rates are high and it can rightly claim to be Britain’s most popular racket sport.
At elite level a small band of around 90 players (junior and senior) have trained within the World Class programmes since the start of the millenium. In that period of time there have been numerous successes.
Despite this BADMINTON England is neither complacent nor satisfied but want to raise standards so we are able to compete against the best in the world in all events.
BADMINTON England Performance Centres are integral to achieving the aim of improving the standard of players so more pressure is exerted on the top elite band.

The club provides opportunities for young people to receive coaching and competition in the local leagues and tournaments.
All coaching is led by qualified coaches who are members of BADMINTON England’s Coaches Register and have been CRB checked by BADMINTON England for their suitability for working with young people.
The club has been accredited with Sport England’s Clubmark, which is awarded to clubs by BADMINTON England when the club is able to demonstrate that it meets BADMINTON England’s criteria as to playing programme; safeguarding and protecting children; knowing your club and its community and club management. The Clubmark is an acknowledgement that we take these issues seriously and that we are striving to provide a high quality and welcoming environment for young participants in badminton.
