Welcome to Suffolk


Welcome to Suffolk Community Badminton - offering a wide range of coaching opportunities for all ages and levels of play. Delivering professional weekly junior and adult badminton coaching programmes, holiday camps, competitions and fun events for the whole family.

We welcome players of all ages and standards; focusing on the enjoyment of playing badminton in a relaxed and friendly environment.  With a busy programme of activity and great facilities, Suffolk Community Badminton is the place to play!

Our programme is overseen by former world number one, and Double Olympian Julie Bradbury.  Julie has a wealth of playing and coaching experiences and is responsible for the overall programme of activities.  Suffolk Community Badminton works in partnership with both Suffolk Badminton and Badminton England to deliver current and relevant badminton programmes across the county.

Our new Next Gen junior badminton programmes have been developed to help players accelerate their learning and development.  We deliver the following weekly junior programmes as well as holiday camps:

          Minis (ages 4-6)

          Rookies (ages 6-8)

          Futures (ages 8-10)

          Juniors (ages 10+)

          Teens (ages 14+)


A new adaptive court and lots of colourful equipment including balloons is a fantastic way to introduce the sport to little ones!


With the adaptive smaller court, net and rackets, Rookies offers the perfect step up from Minis to encourage rallies over the net with added skill and control, with all the fun and energy of the real thing.


Now on a shorter full size court perfect for 8-10's to encourage use of width and create spaces on the court.


For players aged 10+ of all levels and abilities. We cater for players who want to play badminton to keep fit, make new friends and have fun, to those who have aspirations to become the next Olympic champion!


Catered for ages 14+Lots of competitive play with friends - more tactical and matchplay at this level.
