Badminton: Disability Junior Championships to return

Posted 19th February 2024

Badminton England are pleased to announce that their Disability Junior Championships are returning for a second year following the success of 2023’s debut event.

The Championships will take place at the English Institute of Sport (EIS) in Sheffield on Saturday 18 May 2024 and will once again raise the profile of the sport among primary and secondary age pupils.

Entry is open to all junior players aged 9-16 years old who have a physical disability, including wheelchair users. They welcome players who are already playing badminton and new players that have never played before.

The event is part of Badminton England’s Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Strategy, which includes increasing disability provision.

Badminton England will use an existing network of eight Regional Disability Coaches, one across each of their eight regions, who will support the delivery of the Championships through delivering local regional activity and then coaching and managing each regional team of players.
