Come And Join The Big Hit In September

We want to celebrate badminton like never before, and share all that is great about our sport with fellow members and new faces alike.

The Big Hit, from September 13 to 17, is a week-long celebration of everything badminton. We want you to get on court, and invite others to join you in doing the same.

Whether it’s taking part in our range of family events, outdoor badminton tournaments, social evenings, or just hitting a shuttlecock with a mate, we want the nation to get on court as part of our Big Hit week from September 13 to 17. With leagues restarting, and Tokyo memories still fresh in the mind, we want to make September all about badminton.

If you are a player, speak to your local club or facility about how to get involved.

If you are a club or coach looking for ideas on how to get involved visit our resource hub and don’t forget to register and tell us how you are getting involved in The Big Hit! The first 100 clubs or coaches to sign up will receive a FREE promotional pack.
