Nottinghamshire Badminton Association Update - April 2015

Introduction

This report provides an update on work undertaken by BADMINTON England in the County of Nottinghamshire for the period January to March 2015.

Following on from the Chief Executive’s County tour, which is just under half way complete, we are very keen to explore ways of working more effectively with CBAs. We would, therefore, very much encourage you to engage with your regional team and identify ways of working together. In particular, there are a number of ways in which clubs, leagues, counties and Badminton England can work together to develop badminton locally and we are keen to help you take advantage of these opportunities.

Satellite Clubs

Aimed at 11-25 year olds, the satellite club programme can help bridge the gap into community sport and provide new opportunities for young people to create lifelong sporting habits. Satellite clubs are established through a community sports club delivering badminton in a host school, college or university, developing an extension to the club. The benefits of this include greater awareness of the club and increased membership with potential funding available to help set up the sessions. If your club is interested in setting up a satellite club in the local community contact Michael Nyarko, Regional Manager on 07725 074 533.

Premier Clubs

Premier Club is Badminton England’s Clubmark standard which is a cross sport accreditation for the sports clubs across the country. As a National Governing Body, Badminton England awards Premier Club status to proven high quality clubs that have successfully demonstrated required levels of provision and safeguarding for their members. The process has been streamlined recently to make it more accessible and manageable for clubs with increased benefits being developed for clubs that achieve accreditation. If your club is interested in setting up a satellite club in the local community contact Robert Flack on robertflack@badmintonengland.co.uk or 07725413544.

Workforce

As part of Badminton England commitment to building a stronger sport, Robert Flack Workforce Officer for the East, is currently working with partners from the badminton community to develop a workforce development plan for the year and coming season. This is looking to take into account demand and need as well as identifying priority areas for the sport within the county. Actions will then be undertaken as part of the plan to meet these needs. We are very keen that the thoughts, opinions and needs of the County Badminton Association and clubs are heard. Therefore, if you would like to feed into this plan please contact Robert Flack on robertflack@badmintonengland.co.uk or 07725 413 544.

Feedback on the content of this update is welcome and should be directed, together with any queries, to the Regional Manager for your region.
