About Us

In October 2007, Solihull & Shirley set up their first junior group and have gone from strength to strength ever since. We currently run 3 senior groups and 5 junior groups supported by Badminton England registered coaches, who are involved in the running of the PC. Our current coaches have a wealth of expertise and between them have represented Junior and Senior County, England, played in the All England and coached the county squads. Our total number of players attending sessions is approximately 150. We aim to show continued support to players' individual badminton, allowing players to progress to Club, Junior and Senior County levels, or just playing for social reasons.

In 2010, we broke the Guinness World record for the number of players in a continuous rally, and as yet nobody has succeeded in beating, despite several attempts from home and abroad. We run 5 teams in the Birmingham league, 11 teams (4 junior) in the Solihull League and 1 team in the Coventry League (new in 2017). Please see League Tables and Results section or Links section for further information and the leagues and teams.

We are sponsored by Yonex and Maurice Robinson Sports who have helped us to run a number of national tournaments as well as local schools’ ones.

We make sure that we have the correct structure in place as this is very important for the younger players to ensure that they are not missing out on essential building blocks and being pushed too early. We adhere to a Child Protection Policy and are registered to Badminton England. This ensures that we have the required insurance cover, have had the necessary DBS checks and attended relevant courses including first aid and child protection.
