Latest action & news from around Kent:
Worcester U15 Bronze & Hertfordshire U15 Gold Tournament success
A busy weekend for our young U15 stars again.
In the Worcester U15 Bronze Tournament Kent had Kieran Grant win a Bronze medal in the singles & the doubles with his doubles partner Elijah Hon.
In the Hertfordshire U15 Gold Tournament Kent had David Lang win a Bronze medal in the doubles with his partner Felix Wright.
Super well done lads! These tournaments are relentless at the moment but keep up the hard work as the season comes to a close in only a couple of months!
Kent U12 Success & Webber U15 Silver Tournament Success
Our U12 Shires Team travelled to Sussex and did themselves and their parents/coaches proud. They turned up starting the match 4 games down due to not having a 4th girl, yet they still went on to with the overall match 14-6! What a result and as the picture shows, there were many happy children!
Well done guys, some as young as 8yrs old and progressing very well indeed!!
In the Webber U15 Silver Tournament, we had more success with Lucy Satterford (pictured with partner) taking Silver in the ladies doubles & Jack Browne with fellow Kent partner Sam Goddard taking a Bronze in the men’s doubles!
Great effort guys, starting 2019 with a bang

In our Kent U19 tournament, we had Emma Goddard & Emily Tillman win a Silver medal in the ladies doubles. Whilst in the same event we had Jess Beckett taking the Bronze with her partner.
Over at Lancaster, we had a traveling star in the form of David Lang. He went on to take the Gold in the singles!
Great efforts guys and keep the good news coming..

This site provides you with an overview of everything that is happening within Kent County Badminton and contains information for beginners, improver’s, aspiring top badminton players; volunteers or anyone who wants information relating to badminton.
WHO ARE KENT BADMINTON?
Kent Badminton is made up of three sections; Juniors, Seniors and Masters and we work with the clubs, coaches and players throughout Kent to encourage and engage people of all ages in our wonderful sport.
The county set up is run entirely by volunteers. The Board, Kent Badminton Ltd (KBL) is the main organising body, with separate operating committees acting under KBL’s auspices. Information relating to the board structure with details of our constitution and policies can be found by clicking on the “Administration” link under the Home section of this website.
If you want to get involved with Badminton in Kent in any capacity please contact Mike O’Keeffe.
The “Juniors” section includes all the news relating to junior events and tournaments, training and county teams at all age groups .
The “Seniors” section includes details about the county teams, training, selection and results information.
For those more mature in years (over 35) the “Masters” section outlines opportunities for competitive play in tournaments and county teams.
There is also a thriving Kent Supporters Association who help to run tournaments and organise fund raisers to support KBL’s activities.
Finally we have a great regional setup – please explore the links to “Kent Regions” who run local leagues and support clubs near you. Each has a website with further information to support you at a local (rather than county) level.
WHAT DO KENT BADMINTON DO?
We provide a management structure to co-ordinate the development of players throughout the county. By working closely with Clubs and Coaches throughout the county, we aim to develop both a strong level of participation and a pool of talented players, able to represent Kent in County-level competition.
