Waikato Badminton takes the coaching of players seriously and we try to make coaching accessible to everybody in the Waikato.

Coaching options range from: club visits by coaches, being part of the WBA coaching programme for representative players (click to see) or having private coaching (one on one or in small groups).

The coaches’ vision is to develop players’ skills by increasing players’ confidence and self belief – putting emphasis on the effort players must put into their coaching sessions. Our coaching team is passionate and experienced; we cater for players of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.

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 training programme, and current High Performance players who are representing New Zealand at international competitions.

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