Junior Badminton - Badminton In Schools

If you would like to enquire about schools badminton, enquire about equipment or get badminton coaching in your school please contact Sandra for more information.

We are serious about schools badminton and are prioritising badminton in schools over the next few years.  We run our annual schools competitions to offer students the chance to take-part and enjoy badminton. Our sport is perfect for students as it is indoors, non-contact, is great for improving hand-eye co-ordination and anyone of any ability can try it. As badminton players progress, so too does their fitness levels, agility and racket skills; they also become tactically aware of why to hit certain shots and where to place them. Our sport is a great social outlet for students and there are also afterschool clubs in Palmerston North for those who want some extra-curricular badminton – junior clubs

COACHES & TEACHERS - ShuttleTime is the new BWF Schools Programme which has been created to help teachers and coached dvelop skills and plan safe and fun badminton sessions; this is free to sign-up to and has an abundance of information, coaching manuals and videos. Their new website is awesome - http://bwfshuttletime.com/
