Additional information from Debbie Rigby:
All Stars has 3 different groups, Sara Sankey started the first in Milton Keynes approx. 6 years ago, she has a very large club of over 150 members, Im not sure if or hoe many disabled players she has, but I do know we encourage anyone who wants to play the game. They have a number of league teams
I, myself started my club in Southport only 18months ago we now have 3 sections, Burscough, Banks and Dunes, to accommodate as many people as possible, we have 2 players with LD and one with CP, who I have just mentored to his level 1 coach and is now working alongside me. These players will also be playing the Parabadminton Games in Nottingham in a couple of weeks time, where I will also attend to help organise and advise them. We entered a team in the league last year, they all played well, including my 2 LDs and are looking forward to the competition again next season.
The Bolton All Stars was only started in September of last year, myself and level 2 coach Marc Rideout run this session on a Saturday at Westhoughton Community Leisure Centre, we are a small group, but growing all the time, we have 1 Dwarf member who again will be playing in Nottingham. We are working towards senior and junior league status for next year.
As you can see, we have quite a number of outlets for players up and down the country and felt there may well be some disabled players who may be missing out because they didn’t know about us.

Nottingham based Blazers Wheelchair Badminton Club was established in February 2006 after a one day Wheelchair badminton taster session was held in Leicestershire. The taster session was attended by players from all over England and its success gave Badminton Development Officer, Elaine Spray the inspiration to set up the club to give people with disabilities more opportunity and variety of sports to the already successful wheelchair tennis and basketball clubs in Nottingham.
The club started with £5,000 National Lottery money from Awards for All, and five specialist Sport Wheelchairs donated from The Lord Taveners. That enabled offer people who use 'day chairs' to experience this very sociable sport for themselves. Although the club doesn’t have a large membership, it does play host to dedicated players who regularly play each week to enjoy their sport.
As a Badminton England Affiliated club, we were awarded club of the month by Badminton England in May 2010.To mark our continued achievements since our establishment in 2006,with our players winning several medals within the 4 Nations Para-Badminton series. Aided by level 2 coach Oliver Ward who’s dedicated much of his time in coaching Paula, Bernadette and Owen.
There will be many people in the Nottinghamshire area that would welcome the opportunity to try something different, meet new people and have a great deal of fun. Age is no barrier for this sport and the first few sessions are free for you to try.
Come along on Fridays between 7.00 pm and 9.00 pm to the Ellis Guilford Sports Centre, Bars Lane, Basford, Nottingham you'll be sure of a very warm welcome.

We have introduced a disability session to provide disabled players an excellent entry point into the club.The session also gives disabled players the opportunity to play against one another. Other than the open session which is for able bodied and disabled we have graded sessions throughout the week. Players are graded on ability by our head coach and provides a clear performance pathway for those who want to compete in leagues and tournaments.
