Following the great success of the National Badminton Awards 2014, we are delighted to announce that they are back for a third year running.
The annual National Badminton Awards in partnership with Wedlake Bell LLP are the perfect excuse to sing the praises of the brilliant volunteers and players of our fantastic sport.
Not only will the winners receive an undoubtedly well deserved spotlight, they will also have the pleasure of attending the 2015 ceremony.
Nominations are now welcomed for the following categories:
- Club of the Year (sponsored by Perkins Slade)
- Coach of the Year (sponsored by Bluegreen Design Consultants)
- Volunteer of the Year (sponsored by Yonex)
At this prestigious event we will also be presenting two other awards (which are not open for public nomination):
- Player of the Year (sponsored by Yonex)
- Young Player of the Year (sponsored by Yonex)
Anyone (a club, fan, member of the public etc) can nominate someone for one or more categories. However, please note that self nominations will not be eligible. Nominations will only be accepted via our online nomination form and must be received no later than 5pm on 15 January 2015.
Nominators will need to give their reasons for suggesting an individual, reflecting their contribution between March 2014 – and now; such as their work to date, or perhaps their passion for the game by attending lots of events. Whatever your reasons, we want to hear how you play, love and live badminton.
Please note that by submitting a nomination you are confirming the individual is happy for their details to be shared with BADMINTON England. Personal details (such as contact information) will not be published. However, the winning nominator’s name will be shared on our website, as well as the winner’s name, photo and reasons.
The winners will be invited to bring up to two guests to join them at the National Badminton Awards ceremony. Additionally, the person who submitted the winning nomination will also be invited to join the celebrations.
The ceremony will be held on Friday 6 March 2015 in Birmingham, alongside the quarter finals of the YONEX All England Open Badminton Championships. Guests will enjoy a delicious three course lunch, during which our winners will receive their award. The winner and their guests will then watch the quarter finals at the nearby National Indoor Arena, from the comfort of our hospitality box.
The BADMINTON England Honours Committee will decide on the winners for the Club of the Year (sponsored by Perkins Slade), Coach of the Year (sponsored by Bluegreen Design Consultants), and Volunteer of the Year (sponsored by YONEX) awards. The National Coaching Team will decide on the two player awards (both sponsored by YONEX).
We received a high number of nominations last year and it was great to read the fantastic contributions you all make to our sport. We would love to hear from you again.
