Badminton News for 2018/2019


Following the launch of its Discover Badminton strategy last year and a review of its competition offer, including extensive consultation across the network, Badminton England will be implementing the following changes for the academic year 2018/19 to its School Games offer:

  • The secondary school competition – National Schools Championships – will no longer be part of Badminton England's School Games offer.
  • Badminton England will organise and run its own secondary school competition – to help shape that event and express interest, please ask schools to complete this form; further details on this will be available in September.
  • Badminton England's School Games offer will now be a festival linked to its Racket Pack programme – full details on this, including formats, will be circulated by the Youth Sport Trust in the coming months. The festival will be for children in Year 5 and above.
