Barcer Badminton AcademyFormer Welsh Junior International Luke Tanner has announced that a new badminton academy will be coming to North East Wales in January 2011.

Barcer Badminton Academy has been set up to help promote and develop badminton at all levels from grass roots to high performance in the North East Wales Region.

The main aim is to increase player numbers participating in competitive badminton, to raise the overall standard and to help young players achieve their goals.

To do this, Barcer Badminton Academy focuses on the badminton needs of schools, clubs and associations and individuals, from hands on coaching to coach education programmes – and will be available to assist anyone involved or wanting to be involved in badminton.

Luke has set up a website for Barcer Badminton Academy to detail all the services which will be available.
