Facility support and guidance

We are Badminton England

On 22 February 2021, the Government set out its roadmap out of the current lockdown. Badminton England welcomes this announcement and we have begun to consider our own roadmap for the return of badminton, in accordance with all Government measures.

Although it may still feel like restarting is further away than we would like, we are pleased that players, clubs, leagues, counties, coaches and volunteers across the country can now begin to plan the return to play. Currently, we are working closely with facility providers to understand availability and to access courts as quickly as possible.

We are acutely aware that one of the key challenges to getting all our clubs and players back playing will be the availability of courts across the country for badminton. We are doing all we can to support a safe return to courts as and when restrictions allow. Examples of this support is outlined below along with opportunities for you to let us know about your facility challenges or search for alternative venues through our Discover Badminton Activity Finder.

What are we doing to help

To support the reopening of facilities we are:

  • Working with Government, including the Department for Education, to lobby for the additional support for the safe and efficient opening of facilities.
  • Working with Sport England, ukactive and Community Leisure UK to consult commercial leisure operator partners to better understand when facilities will reopen and how we can support the opening of facilities.
  • Leveraging our partnerships with school facility providers to try and open doors to new and alternative venues on either an interim or permanent basis.
  • Working to update our activity finder to be able to quickly and easily notify the badminton community of facilities that are open to help find alternative venues where required.
  • Providing tailored support for those struggling to access venues near them, or those whose facilities are being used as vaccination sites.
