Club Health Check

Our Club Health Check has been designed as a check and challenge for your club to help give you a sense of where your club is currently at. The health check is a quick online survey that will help your club to identify areas within your club that you may want to enhance or develop.

At Badminton England a key priority is to support our clubs to grow and retain membership, increase participation and be financially sustainable. We have a team of experienced Relationship Managers that can support your club in these areas and tailor this support depending on the outcomes you want as a club. We want to help to empower our clubs, so badminton is supported by a club structure long into the future.

The health check is a measure for your club and by using it you are taking a step to maintaining and developing your club’s health to ensure you are providing the best possible service for your participants.

By completing the health check, it will provide Badminton England with the opportunity to ensure we are supporting your club in the best possible way. Once completed your local Relationship Manager will be in contact with you to follow up and discuss how you as a club want to progress and the support we can provide to help you.

Club Development Toolkit

Within Badminton England’s online resource hub, we have designed a Club Development Toolkit to provide support and guidance to help our clubs achieve their ambitions. Within the toolkit, there is a large online library of resources to support clubs to develop, with the resources covering various key areas where clubs typically require support to evolve and progress.  

This is a large online library of resources to support your club to develop and covers several different areas from Participant Experience, Governance and Safeguarding to Workforce, Funding and Marketing & Promotion.

If you are already signed up to Badminton England’s online resource hub and you regularly use it: Sign into the Resource Hub: https://badmintonengland.hivelearning.com/signin Follow the link and it will take you straight to the Club Development Toolkit: Badminton England (hivelearning.com)

The club development toolkit is directly linked to the Club Health Check. The health check will help your club to identify key areas you want to develop, and the toolkit will support this development with information and supporting material covering each area. The toolkit can be used independently as a resource library to support your club or in conjunction with the club health check.
