Our programmes are constantly under review and we have taken on board feedback from Coordinators as well as participants to make sure sessions are as enjoyable and successful as possible.
These consultations resulted in the implementation of the Discover Badminton tool which allows coordinators to register and promote their sessions as well as communicating with participants. We have also received many queries regarding the delivery of NSB during the Covid-19 pandemic and how sessions can be run safely while still maintaining the fun and social environment that is so important to the NSB programme. In order to ensure all our Coordinators, have access to the most up to date information regarding NSB and these new initiatives we have updated the training module and are offering this to all existing coordinators as well as recent recruits.
