Butler named new Singles coach

We are pleased to announce that Steve Butler will be joining Badminton England as a National Singles Coach from 15th June 2015.

This follows the recent departure of Stuart Wardell from the National Badminton Centre last month. 

Steve previously worked with Badminton England as a National Coach. Steve himself is an ex-international England player and has worked as a coach for a number of years at junior and senior levels.

This included coaching Rajiv Ouseph to his Junior European Championship Gold medal in 2005. Steve will work with the GB and England squad players in Milton Keynes.

Jon Austin, Performance Director, said: "I am delighted that Steve Butler is re-joining Badminton England and feel he has the ability to maximise the potential of the current singles squad. I am also very keen for him to help us develop the next generation of singles players in England."
