National Badminton Centre
The National Badminton Centre is the home of the GB squad and the headquarters of Badminton England. In addition to this it is a focal point for local clubs in the area and hosts many county and National tournaments.
Badminton is an excellent way to get fit and meet people and can be played by all ages and abilities, from social to joining one of the 17 resident clubs based here. If you have time during the day there are three clubs that play in the mornings. The centre also offers two over-50s clubs on Mondays and Thursdays.
We continue to host the MK Schools Talent Development Squad, giving local school children the opportunity to play at a premier venue and host a monthly school tournament. Residential individual and club coaching weekends can be arranged to suit your standard.
Many local residents are members of both the Badminton and Fusion Health Club sections. There are a number of local badminton clubs who use the centre at a range of times during the day and evenings.
Although catering for the national squad, the centre is open for anyone to join and you could be playing on a court next to an Olympic medallist. It is held in high regard across the world and is the envy of many other sports in this country.
The centre’s three conference rooms are heavily booked. The main All England Room holds up to 100 theatre style with an integral sound and projection system. The other rooms are ideal for smaller meetings, one being a boardroom style and the other designed for seminars at very competitive rates.
With top-class facilities, catering continuing to be provided by Blue Apple Catering and on-site free car parking, the centre is the perfect venue. Many large organisations and companies in Milton Keynes, such as MK Council and Argos, take advantage of the superb package on offer at the NBC.
Fusion operates the Health Club and has invested over £300,000 in refurbishing the gym and changing rooms. They have continued the centre’s reputation as a friendly club with over 1,100 members, state-of-the art equipment and over 40 weekly fitness classes, from pilates to the latest spinning sessions.
Rates are very competitive compared with other local clubs, with great deals always available, so it is well worth phoning or popping in to hear about the latest offer. Call 01908 578300 for membership details.
The club is available for private functions, such as weddings, birthdays and christenings at excellent rates. If you wish to book a function, or view the facilities on offer, please contact Carole Locke - Conference and Bookings Co-ordinator on 01908 268479 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please ring for details of clubs based at the centre should you wish to take up, or return to, the game.

The club may house the National Squad but it is very much a local facility and one of which England can be proud.
