Kent Badminton Supporters Association

“The Association was set up many years ago, with the objective of helping and promoting the sport of badminton in the county. In this time, we have assisted players, clubs and schools. We have helped young players who found the financial burden of training, travelling and buying kit difficult. We have helped schools and clubs obtain equipment. Most requests for help come from coaches or friends on behalf of players. If you are aware of any extra special needs, please contact us. We will look carefully and sympathetically at any requests.” Eric Jenner – Chairman

Annual General Meeting 2017

“The Kent Badminton Supporters Association held their Annual General Meeting on the 23rd June. It has been a successful year, during which we have been able to support individuals and groups. We maintained a very healthy financial balance. If you wish to see details, please contact Pam Elsegood.

Our Barn Dance and quiz evenings were very popular, and raised valuable funds.

The Kent Masters Gold tournament continues to be the best in England, and is organised by the association. This year, it is being held at Medway Park on the 27th – 28th and 29th October.

K.B.S.A. Sponsors the 2017 Junior ICT Team kit!

The supporters have decided to sponsor the Kent Junior ICT Team Kit for 2017. They decided that the team (who have done so well over the past few seasons) deserve a special kit and wanted to be a part of Kent’s commitment to supporting success. The week long tournament against all of England’s Counties was held in Nottingham. The team came 13th overall which we are all very proud of!

The sponsored evening went well for the ICT 2017 team. The team were presented their lovely new kit from Sue Whetnall.
