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.
This review has led to the decision that our main initial focus and commitment will be on the junior sections of our organization, where we have looked at player development, coaching and playing opportunities.
Looking at the above criteria, we believe we have created a unique and exciting package which, we feel, will improve badminton for junior players throughout North East Wales.
A number of clubs affiliated to the North East Wales Badminton Association run sessions during the summer months. These are ideal for those players relatively new to badminton or for past players who want to get back into the sport. Read more
