how we operate

We work with a range of partners, funders and sponsors to achieve our aims. The County Badminton Associations are our constituent parts and deliver activity in their areas including county teams, competitions and tournaments and coach development. Where relevant, we will invest through the CBAs to develop the sport.

We receive significant financial support from Sport England to increase participation and improve talent pathways and from UK Sport to develop Olympic Champions. We are proud to work with these two bodies to develop badminton and sport in general. We also have a number of key sponsors that invest in the sport.

Outside of major events and the England squad which we deliver directly, we work through partners to deliver our aims. We work with a wide range of partners including leisure operators and trusts, local authorities, charities, educational establishments, national partners such as Sports Coach UK and the English Institute of Sport. We aim to work in a way that develops badminton whilst also enabling partners to deliver their objectives, ensuring a ‘win/win’ for both parties.


We invest in short and medium term activities to achieve our aims and these are described in this document. We also invest in the long-term future of our sport. Over the next period this will see:

  • The continuation of our efforts to relocate our headquarters to a new National Badminton Arena, creating a world class training environment and community badminton centre
  • Investment in Community Badminton Networks that develop the sport in a way that meets the needs of the people in the local area
  • The implementation of a strategy that enables the development of the next generation of volunteers who are the people that make badminton happen
  • Investment into facilities to increase the number of quality places for people to play badminton
