Club Mark

Phoenix Junior Badminton Club is a Badminton PREMIER Club (Clubmark), accredited by Badminton England.

Clubmark is a cross-sport quality accreditation for junior clubs or clubs with junior sections.  Premier Club is BADMINTON England’s Clubmark standard. The ethos and principles of Premier Club and Clubmark standard should automatically apply to all levels of our accredited Club Future clubs involved with young people

It is vital that our club serves young people well. Badminton clubs that work with children and young people need and deserve support to improve the quality of work they do so that together we can:

  • Ensure the well-being of young people whilst in the care of adults, other than their legal parent(s)/carer(s)
  • Enthuse young people to enjoy sport and active recreation to build a healthy and active lifestyle
  • Enable young people to use their leisure time creatively
  • Allow young people to optimise their talents and personal ability
  • Identify and support the development of the most talented young people

Coaches

“For me the challenge of the culture of the clubs is one of the most exciting.  It’s where people start to play, where they continue a life-long experience, where they nurture talent, where coaches and volunteers are.  And this is where we should be embedding our competition.”
 

Adrian Christy, Chief Executive, Badminton England.

Phoenix Badminton Club is committed to developing both new coaches and coaches wishing to develop their skills and experience to a further level. We currently have 5 coaches with the Badminton England Level 2 accreditation (or equivalent) and a further 2 starting their Level 1 in September 2010. All coaches are CRB checked and registered with Badminton England, giving them Civil Liability Insurance up to £10 million whilst coaching in the UK (This policy covers both Public Liability and Professional Indemnity insurance).

Other course qualifiactions include the following:

  • Fist Aid in Sport
  • Equity in your coaching
  • Coaching Disabled Performers
  • Safeguarding and Protecting children
  • NLP Practitioner

Equity Policy

This club is committed to ensuring that equity is incorporated across all aspects of its development.  In doing so it acknowledges and adopts the following Sport England definition of sports equity.

Sports equity is about fairness in sport, equality of access, recognising inequalities and taking steps to address them.   It is about changing the culture and structure of sport to ensure it becomes equally accessible to everyone in society.

The club respects the rights, dignity and worth of every person and will treat everyone equally within the context of their sport, regardless of age, ability, gender, race, ethnicity, religious belief, sexuality or social/economic status.

The club is committed to everyone having the right to enjoy their sport in an environment free from threat of intimidation, harassment and abuse.

All club members have a responsibility to oppose discriminatory behaviour and promote equality of opportunity.

The club will deal with any incidence of discriminatory behaviour seriously, according to club disciplinary procedures

Events

World Record Attempt! 7th August 2010

‘Most participants in a badminton rally’

The most participants in a badminton rally is 96 and was achieved by Aviva (Singapore), in Raffles City Mall, Singapore, on 23 May 2009.

We will attempt to break this world record on Saturday 7th August at Stoke Mandeville Stadium between 1-3pm. For us to achieve this we will need well over 100 players to take part. We do not only want to break this record but smash it (excuse the pun)!!

I would like to take this opportunity to invite you and your club to take part in our world record attempt. We will also be organising some exhibition matches, with an England National player kicking it off and some other fun activities for you and your team mates to come and take part in.

We hope to raise money from this event not only for our Community Badminton Network, to support new badminton initiatives in the local area, but also for Wheel Power.

If you would like to be involved in this world record attempt, please request the registration form and send it back to Nina Bridge, BADMINTON England, National Badminton Centre, Loughton Lodge, Milton Keynes, MK8 9LA. I will then allocate you a number and I can also send you a sponsorship form so you can raise money if you are interested in doing so.

Exhibition match from the event, including Alyssa Lim (England player), although the record wasn't broken, it was a fantastic event and raised the profile of badminton in the Aylesbury Vale area.
