The forum was originally put together to help BADMINTON England understand exactly what young people want and what would motivate and inspire them to play more badminton. The forum members felt a competition like this would encourage more young people to try the sport and become regular players.
Format for the day:
- 10am-11am: Badminton England coaching session – a chance to meet and play with an England squad player
- 11.15am-1pm: Fun, social tournament following on from the coached session
- 1.30pm-5.30pm: Competitive men’s and ladies’ doubles tournament
Entry fee: £3 per player
Closing date for entries: Friday 4th March 2011
