Why Leicestershire Badminton PC
Leicestershire Badminton Performance Centre
Leicestershire Performance Centre is part of Leicestershire Badminton Association, and represents youth and adult training for badminton in Leicestershire. From developing coaching sessions to local primary schools, to training players at a high level looking to break into the England Squad.
We currently have a junior National Champion and several players who have represented England at junior level. The centre is fed from local clubs around Leicestershire and are looking to develop this further and hopefully get into 150 primary schools to teach badminton after school or in PE lessons. Many of the these schools are in diverse and socially deprived areas.
Many of our players participate in national tournaments on a weekly basis. With this we are able to promote the sponsor within the whole of the uk. We also are part of the county league in which we play other counties, again being able to promote any companies all around the country.
Why Sponsor Us?
Competing at the highest badminton level possible creates huge exposure for potential sponsors, as we travel up and down the country regularly. The tournaments are weekly, on weekends, taking up the majority of a day.
We have huge aspirations for our social media channels and website. For our sponsors we would love to discuss sharing your brand logo and name on our website whilst also promoting regularly on our channels any partnerships we have.
We train at Babington college in which we have our own hall - there is huge room for sponsorship opportunities around this hall, particularly banners and pop up signs. We host at least 10 tournaments a year with 6 of them being BadmintonEngland tournaments having many players attend from all over the country.
Currently we have about 75 children within our performance centre, made up of 5 different levels (ranging from beginners to England level). We have just begun a gold programme in which 6 players have been given the opportunity to train 6 times a week to try and progress them further towards an Badminton England career.
- We have huge aspirations to get our 6 players in the gold programme to England level, alongside getting into around 150 schools as mentioned.
- Give the athletes the opportunity to learn and develop their skills towards an international level.
- Deliver sports psychology to deal with both winning and losing.
-To develop social skills and working as part of a team.
- To produce world beaters.
- We aim to get into every school in the county to coach badminton.
- Overall, we aspire to be the best county in the UK for badminton success.
The performance centre started about 15 years ago with about 50 players training once a week. Since then we have increased numbers to nearly 100, most training at least twice a week and the gold programme and the elite programmes training 5 times a week. We have had 3 national champions since then and have won many medals across different levels.
In 2019, Leicestershire came second in the Inter County Tournament which is the highest Leicsestershire has ever come in the history of the 4 day event and something we are extremely proud of. This tournamenet is also a great chance for brand exposure for businesses.
We have one of the England coaches as our head coach, which is fantastic for the players.
