Badminton needs you!

The Vision – “To create a home for Badminton in the North East”

Over the last 18 months 4 badminton enthusiasts have been striving hard in pursuit of a shared vision – to create a home for Badminton in the North East. Tyneside Badminton Centre Ltd. has been formed as a ‘NOT FOR PROFIT’, Community Interest Company (CiC) and is here solely to serve the Badminton community, all day, every day and all the year round.

Where we are now

With the help of Newcastle City Council, we have identified a building with a 25 year lease which can be adapted and expanded. Located in Slatyford, the building has 3 good courts and excellent ancillary facilities, including reception, changing rooms, cafeteria and on-site parking.  We have secured a substantial grant from BADMINTON England, the largest awarded for such a venture. This has been matched by private investment and, supported by Northumberland Badminton Association and Newcastle City Council, we are on the brink of turning the vision into reality.

Where we will get to

Our vision involves expanding the existing building to 9 courts in total, built to international specification and upgrading the ancillary facilities to include a gym, health centre, viewing gallery and additional parking. The build could start in September – yes, that’s right, in just 3 months’ time!

We need your support!

Despite the excellent progress made, we are still £100k short of our financial target. This is where we need your support in order to help make the vision become a reality. Below are various ways in which you could become part of this project.
