About Yonex Ipswich Badminton Performance Centre

The Ipswich Badminton Performance Centre enables junior badminton players to maximise their potential through fun and friendly coaching.

The performance centre provides high quality coaching for junior players wishing to succeed in the sport. The coaching not only includes hitting techniques, movement and tactics but also aspects such as fitness, nutrition, hydration and lifestyle.

Players do not need to have previous experience of playing badminton but need to be keen and enthusiastic. Players often progress to play in local leagues, local tournaments, county squads and in Badminton England junior tournaments.

The performance centre is one of a number of performance centres around the country that have been set up by Badminton England with the aim of providing pathways for talented young players. Players come from Suffolk, Essex, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire.

Sessions are held on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday evenings with players assigned to groups according to ability. The sports hall at Suffolk One has six excellent badminton courts.

Those interested in joining Ipswich Badminton Performance Centre are invited to a free taster session (booking required).

Sessions through the year are divided into three 16-week periods. The cost is £9 per session (nominally two hours) usually payable in advance for a 16-week period, but with some discounts available.
