Junior round up june racket 1200

28 July, 2023

Badminton England are proud to be launching the inaugural annual Badminton England Club & Coach Conference taking place at the National Badminton Centre on Saturday 14th & Sunday 15th October 2023. The conference is designed to connect, educate, and inspire those who are key to the development of grassroots badminton and will be led by clubs, coaches, and coach developers who will be sharing their learning and expertise.

Bookings are now open and are exclusive to Badminton England members. Tickets are just £15 per person with limited places available.

The event promises to be full of useful content and will be a great opportunity to speak with BE staff and network with other clubs and coaches from across the country.

The club & coach elements will run separately with the groups being brought together to hear about the exciting direction of Badminton England, as we launch our Club Strategy and present on our exciting new plans for junior players. The booking links below are different so please ensure you book on to the part of the conference that you are most interested to attend (unfortunately we are unable to offer the opportunity to swap between the two).
