About Yonex Ipswich Badminton Performance Centre

In 2008 Badminton England launched its vision for future international success. Part of their plan was to develop a countrywide network of performance centres by 2013. These centres are to focus on delivering quality coaching and fitness development for juniors by well-qualified coaches in the very best environments.

The Ipswich Badminton Performance Centre has been set up as part of this programme and the centre has secured experienced coaches with strong track records in developing junior players to international standard.

High quality talent identification programmes are run to proactively seek out young people that demonstrate considerable talent characteristics.

These may be those who:

► have had little exposure to sports coaching;

► have had a lot of exposure to sport but not necessarily badminton;

► are already engaged in badminton.

A player pathway supports player development to enable them to maximise their potential, whilst also maintaining a clear route back into the club pathway.

Player Pathway Suffolk One

The facilities at Suffolk One are second to none. The building was opened in 2009 and is a flagship centre of excellence for education of 16 to 19 year olds. Not only is there is a six-court badminton hall, but the performance centre also has access to the dance studio and fitness suite with all the latest assessment equipment.

IBPC Players Take Titles Galore in Suffolk Restricted Championships

In a stunning endorsement of the success the IBPC brings to players who are attending the centre, a series of superb performances saw title successes in all age groups and at senior level.

The Suffolk Senior Restricted Tournament saw wins for George Isherwood in the men’s singles, in the men’s doubles with James Clouting and in the mixed with Kari Sherington. Georgia Cattermole also took the ladies' singles title, so four out of titles went the way of performance centre players. There were also semi-final appearances in ladies' doubles for Kym Gormer and Isabel Lucas and many more excellent performances. This was a great achievement.

This has been followed up with 16 out of 20 titles in the junior championships, with at least one finalist in every event in every age category from under-13, under-15, under-17 and under-19. Fantastic! There were wins for Levi Hoang, Rebekah Easy in multiple events at under-13; Megan Courtier, Jonathan Coleman, Matthew Cross and Levi Hoang at under-15; Ashleigh Gormer, Gavin Coyne, Andrew Sheat, Anna Godbold and Megan Clark at under-17; and a clean sweep with all the finalists at under-19 with wins for George Isherwood, James Clouting, Kym Gormer, Isabel Lucas and Georgia Cattermole.  

Congratulations to you all.         Mike Tee  (Chair IBPC)
