Suffolk Spearheading Badminton Participation

Suffolk has been selected by Badminton England as one of three counties to lead the way in increasing the number of people playing badminton. The initiative is a partnership between Badminton England, Suffolk Sport, Suffolk Badminton Association, local leagues, community badminton networks and the Ipswich Badminton Performance Centre. With funding of an employee part-time, the focus is on getting more young children playing but also seeking to increase access to courts and to assist with the development of clubs. A key target is to double the number of junior clubs by 2018.  The new sessions at Moreton Hall (above) are part of this initiative.       Detailed plan ►  (PDF 129KBytes)
