This project was funded on 28 Apr 2023!

We want to supply t-shirts for our Rossendale Junior Badminton players so they promote the area when they play local tournaments. We would also like to supply the players with improved racquets and shuttlecocks, as well as covering the court costs. Through promotional posters which we will distribute to schools and leisure centres, we hope to increase the current number of players who attend the weekly practice, and to pay travelling expenses for the volunteer coaches. We particularly want to target girls to the practice as the senior league has a shortage of female players, with a view to encourage individual clubs to 'adopt' young players. We will also organise a local Junior tournament, at grassroots level, to help promote the sport within Rossendale.

What we'll deliver:

  • t-shirts for the junior players with Rossendale Badminton Juniors
  • racquets, shuttlecocks and court costs covered
  • promotional posters to advertise the badminton coaching

Why it's a great idea:

Badminton is a form of exercise which can be easy to pick up and, with coaching, children can see rapid development in ther achievement. Playing alongside others, encourages both team work and discipline. Listening to coaching and focusing on self-development are skills which we hope to nurture. By providing t-shirts, the children will get a sense of both pride and belonging. The covering of court and racquet costs enables all children to attend as an activity which has been subsidised for them. Competition against other teams and areas will help to develop resilience and an awareness that you may not always win but you can always do your best.

Steps to get it done:

  • provision of team t shirts to create an identity for the young players
  • to produce publicity material to be displayed locally so we can promote and increase our coaching numbers
  • be able to provide good quality badminton racquets and shuttlecocks

If the bid is successful, we will make sure that our neighbouring badminton league of Blackburn&Darwen, also sees the benefits of our crowdfund.
