Julie_BradburyJulie Bradbury is inviting parents to a meeting at Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre to view her new full time Badminton Academy. Julie represented England at badminton 50 times, and also represented Great Britain at the Barcelona and Atlanta Olympics, and was recently appointed Director of Badminton for the “Badminton @ Win Academy”.

This Academy is the first of its kind in England, as it allows players to train full time whilst still continuing with their education – and is based on the highly successful “Win Tennis Academy” format.

The Win Tennis and Badminton Academies are the only Academies to have their education programme delivered by tutors on site from Keystage 2 through to ‘A’ Levels.  Having completed successful taster days and a Summer Camp, Julie now has a number of badminton players signed up for both the full time and part time programme, which began in September 2010.

Julie wants to give all parents and players an opportunity to view this new Academy and would therefore like to invite them along to a parents meeting on 9th December 2010 at 1.30pm at Bisham Abbey.  There will be a short presentation and then a tour of the classrooms, accommodation and the rest of Bisham.  She will then invite parents to come along with her to Wycombe Badminton Centre, where the full time and access players will be having their on-court session with Win Academy coaches.
