About Badminton England
We are the organisation for all things badminton in England for everyone who wants to get involved whatever age, ability or gender. We love playing, watching and supporting badminton. We want everyone in England to do the same and become part of the badminton community, whether as a player, coach, volunteer or fan.
The unique qualities of badminton make it accessible and enjoyable for anyone and everyone. And we work collaboratively with our partners and stakeholders to provide traditional and innovative opportunities for all to be involved; from primary school programmes to adult social badminton, from clubs to counties, and from our world class coaching development to our major events delivery.
With millions playing every year, badminton is the nation’s favourite racket sport. We want to inspire everyone to play more, support louder and love badminton, from this generation to the next.
Badminton England was named the National Governing Body of the Year at the BT Sport Industry Awards 2015.
The Racket Pack for Primary Schools
The Racket Pack is Badminton England’s skill-based programme for younger children which focuses on developing the fundamentals whilst introducing the sport in a fun and engaging way.
With a wide range of adapted equipment suitable for different ages and abilities, characters to relate to and awards to progress through, The Racket Pack aims to provide a positive first experience and develop a lifelong love for the sport.
SmashUp! for Secondary Schools
SmashUp! is a programme that largely caters for secondary schools with both a curricular and extra-curricular element. The extra-curricular format is predominantly games-based with minimal coaching.
It is designed to be fun, whilst allowing players to develop their skills through a variety of games. SmashUp! sessions are often delivered to music and provide opportunities for players to socialise between games creating a relaxed atmosphere.
