National Badminton Museum

National Badminton Museum

The National Badminton Museum is located at the National Badminton Centre. (Bradwell Road, Loughton Lodge, Milton Keynes MK8 9LA).


Volunteers realising the importance of recording and preserving badminton’s heritage formed a committee in 2003 resulting in the launch of the National Badminton Museum.

The Museum has one of the finest and most comprehensive collections of badminton artefacts, archives and memorabilia in the world. The collection is displayed and can be seen at the National Badminton Centre which is the home of English badminton.

In 2007, the museum was granted Charity Status coinciding with a generous legacy left to the museum by the late Audrey Dance nee Stone, a former English international badminton player. To comply with the Charity Commission regulations the National Badminton Museum is now managed by Trustees and a working party of volunteers are responsible for the day-to-day running of the museum.

A large amount of reference material is available in the office of the National Badminton Museum which is usually open Thursday between 1.00pm and 3.00pm. Please contact the museum for an appointment.

Visitors are welcome to look around the museum unescorted at any time - the National Badminton Centre is open 9am to 8pm every day.

If you have any badminton memorabilia, archive material or any other items and would like to donate them to the museum please contact us.
