Recently a meeting was held inviting junior clubs/coaches and parents to attend so we could introduce a new unique and exciting project which, we feel, will improve badminton for junior players throughout North East Wales.
The meeting was well attended by the majority of junior clubs in North East Wales, but was also well supported by coaches and parents from across the region.
Because of the encouragement and engagement we have received from this meeting we are pleased to announce The NEW Way (The North East Wales Way) Project.
