Badminton Scotland’s Development Team already work with a number of partners across Scotland, to develop opportunities for Primary and Secondary pupils to participate in quality badminton activities. However, we are always happy to look at new opportunities to allow more Scottish school pupils to enjoy the benefits that come with playing Badminton. We believe that badminton offers fantastic all round physical activity as well as introducing many skills used in everyday life such as listening and communication skills, working within a team, sportsmanship and many others.

Young Sport Leaders Education Course
A 6 hour course geared towards educating Secondary school pupils on how to coach, how to organise festivals and how to officiate/organise competitions. Pupils who complete this are then permitted to assist in the delivery of Big Hit Festivals.
Big Hit Festivals
A new festival format that was first piloted on 10th May at the Cockburn Centre with 3 Renfrew schools (150 pupils over 5 courts). In comparison with the previous Play Badminton Festivals and Sportshall Challenges, the Big Hit Festivals offer additional services including parallel teacher CPD (including new resources), Young Sport Leader delivery and College/Uni student mentoring opportunities. Furthermore, the ratio of pupils to court has increased with the activities being designed to cater for maximum of 30 pupils per court.
