Coaching Sessions

Our badminton club trains on court twice a week on a Sunday and Monday leading up to BUCS and local league fixtures on Wednesday and Friday. There is also the opportunity for individual and small group coaching during weekday mornings. All sessions are hosted at our sport centre on campus and with their sport memberships our players have the opportunity to book individual courts outside of this, free of charge.

Level 3 accredited coach Martin Fagan has been a county player for over 25 years and represented England at masters international level. He also runs the junior performance program for Northumberland and coaches within schools across Newcastle.

Richard Eaton is a Level 2 accredited coach and also the Head Coach of the Falkland Islands, leading the team at the 2018 Commonwealth Games. He still trains and plays at a high level, representing Northumberland as a senior player and Emlfield in the NBA leagues.

High Quality Coaching

Our strength and conditioning department supports high performance student-athletes in their pursuit of sporting excellence. They provide individualised coaching delivered within a programme of athletic development and injury mitigation. Our coaches work hard to develop students into robust and powerful athletes able to cope with the high demands of competitive badminton.
