Waikato Badminton supports everyone in their journey to play badminton for life. We also invest in player development and try to make coaching accessible to everybody in the Waikato.

Players can access badminton across a wide range of options from school experiences, casual court hire to club play, and coaching. Waikato Badminton places a high importance on coaching, as our vision is to develop players’ skills by increasing players’ confidence and self belief – putting emphasis on the effort and intensity players put into their coaching sessions. The Waikato Badminton coaching team is passionate and experienced – we cater for players of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.

Access to coaching can range from club visits by coaches, being part of the WBA coaching program for representative players (click Pathways menu to see) or having private coaching (one on one or in small groups).

Waikato Badminton’s coaches range from a professional coach with experience at the highest international level, to experienced volunteer coaches with longstanding reputations within the Waikato Badminton player programs, and current High Performance players who are representing New Zealand at international competitions.

If you are looking to improve your skills please email us outlining your coaching needs and we will be in touch as soon as possible to advise you about the options.
