Club Workshops

Club Workshops

The aim of the development team is to support strong and sustainable clubs.  We have developed a calendar of club workshops for club leaders covering a range of topics from Club governance and volunteer recruitment to growing your club through capacity building.  Club workshops are for anyone involved in the running and organisation of clubs, usually committee members. The workshops are free but your club must be affiliated with Badminton Scotland.
