We were very lucky to have such excellent support from our senior members who assisted the club coaches on the day acting as umpires, scorers and cheerleaders.
The enthusiasm from the players and the backup from their parents was infectious and so encouraging for all the helpers making our commitment to organising and running a junior section, alongside our adult club, so worthwhile.
As a consequence Stowmarket Badminton Club have also seen the whole club prosper with youngsters representing our own club, attending county training and playing in county matches. Junior players are the way forward for any club to progress and our membership has certainly flourished because of it.
Chairman, Stowmarket Badminton Club
