Badminton Networks Take Shape
Regional Officers are bringing partners together to provide quality badminton
opportunities for all. Working in hot spot areas across the patch they
are creating Community Badminton Networks (CBN's) to increase the number
of people playing badminton. CBNs offer introductory activity and ongoing
sessions for people of all ages and playing ability. We now have CBNs
at improving level, which means that quality badminton sessions are available
in leisure centres and other community settings. Once introduced to badminton
all players are directed towards local clubs, "No Strings Badminton"
sessions and competitive opportunities to keep as many of them playing
regularly as possible. These networks are lead by local people who have
a vested interest in developing badminton and keeping people fit and active.

Sport England recognises and values the commitment made by sports clubs
to develop high quality, welcoming environments for young participants.
The development of clubs that encourage young people to take-up sport,
improve their talents, possibly play a leadership role and give them the
option to initiate and maintain life-long participation in sport is an
essential part of supporting the sporting infrastructure in England.
was introduced in 2002 by Sport England to:
that accrediting partners apply core common criteria to ensure that
consistent good practice and minimum operating standards are delivered
through all club development and accreditation schemes.
empower parent(s)/carer(s) when choosing a club for their children.
ensure that Clubmark accredited clubs are recognised through a common
approach to branding.
provide a focus around which all organisations involved in sport can
come together to support good practice in sports clubs working with
children and young people.
accreditation is awarded to clubs that comply with minimum operating standards
in four areas:
Duty of care and safeguarding and protecting children and young people
equity and ethics
working towards accreditation can receive support and advice from BADMINTON
England and other partners such as county sports partnerships (Sport
Across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent). Circumstances will vary
between clubs and sports but the process of accreditation is the same.
There is only one set of paperwork to complete and in general most clubs
are well on the way to achieving accreditation without realising it.
