WELCOME

A warm welcome to all badminton players, young and old.

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.
