Shuttlemark Club Accreditation


Increasing participation, developing coaches, volunteers and workforce whilst having solid plans for the future are key to a club’s success and Badminton Scotland want to recognise, support and reward the dedicated volunteers with in clubs that are striving to make this happen.

The aim of the programme is to help support clubs to develop and strengthen their infrastructure, plan for the future and in turn increase capacity and grow

 There are 3 levels to the accreditation programme: Bronze, Silver and Gold. Clubs are required to achieve all requirements before being awarded the Shuttlemark.

As well as a suite of tools, templates and good practice case studies, clubs can also access support from Regional Development Officers (RDOs) to achieve each level.  Once a club has achieved a certain level, there are benefits and rewards that can be accessed.
