Identifying, nurturinganddeveloping talentedbadmintonplayers in East Anglia
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.
The IBPC aims to operate a structured development programme enabling players to maximise
their potential in a fun and friendly coaching environment. Young people are provided
with the appropriate pathway into club, county, national and international level
Sessions through the year are divided into three 16-week periods. The cost is £8
per session, usually payable in advance for a 16-week period, but with some discounts
