Badminton Programmes

Badminton Programmes

Our key objective is to inspire more people to play badminton, through professionally delivered programmes for all ages and abilities. We are achieving this by working collaboratively with our partners to provide the UK with a network of Community Badminton Schools.

Badminton School's are developed in each county, with each school delivering at a number of venues to offer provision for all. Each school offers a full programme of activity, from mini, junior & adult badminton sessions, to Badminton England sessions like No Strings, Essentials, Smashup and Battle Badminton!

We're currently rolling out our countywide Badminton Programmes nationwide. If we’re not currently in your area, please reach out to us for an update!

Club partnerships

Club Partnerships

Club's are at the heartbeat of badminton in this country and we aim to support the 1,800 affiliated clubs develop and thrive. When developing Community Badminton programmes, we work closely with local clubs to ensure programmes are linked, providing a feeder into club sessions, competitive play and county training schemes.

We also have Club Development Managers that work in partnership with Badminton England to support clubs. Club’s are able to receive support from our Development Managers to help them grow, sustain and modernise. Development Managers consult and support on all aspects of club activity. Here are some examples:

  • Support in setting up a new club
  • Modernising club, for example website presence
  • Promotion and marketing solutions
  • Achieving Badminton England Premier Club status

Our club support is completely free for affiliated badminton clubs.
