Badminton England are delighted to announce the launch of their new Disability Junior National Championships, which will take place this summer.
The Championships will raise the profile of badminton amongst secondary age pupils with a physical disability.
Delivered with the support of the GB Para Badminton squad and coaches, this national competition structure will engage new disabled players to provide them with their first introduction to disability competition and ultimately increase disability participation.
The Disability Junior National Championships are being held at the highly accessible venue, the English Institute of Sport (EIS), Sheffield on Saturday, June 17, 2023.
Badminton England have developed a network of Regional Disability Coaches, one within each region, across our eight regions (North West, North East, West Midlands, East Midlands, East, South Central, London & South East, and South West) to support the delivery of the national competition through coaching and managing each regional team of players.
Players will be invited to two regional training days to meet their Regional Disability Coach and play badminton with other players across their region.
To express an interest in getting involved in this and represent your region, please complete the relevant form using the links below.
This is part of Badminton England’s Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Strategy, which includes increasing disability provision.
Rich Morris, Head Coach of GB Para Badminton, said: “This is an idea we have to increase participation and bring the juniors of the para badminton world together in a format where you can represent your region and go head-to-head against the rest of the country.”
