SportsAid offers financial support to talented young sports people at the start of their careers and during times of financial hardship.
Competing at national and international level means huge personal expense for young athletes and their families and SportsAid aims to help support players and parents through this.
Every year Badminton England nominates young badminton players to receive, on average, a financial contribution of around £1,000, which can be used for essential costs such as training, equipment, competition costs and travel.
For 2019-20, the quota of nominations Badminton England has been provided by SportsAid as determined by the National Awards Committee, is 22 nominations.
SportsAid has been supporting aspiring athletes since 1976 and has funded past badminton stars such as Gail Emms, Nathan Robertson and Rajiv Ouseph.
