2023: A Year in Highlights

A message from Keith Russell, CEO of Badminton Scotland:

2023 has been a year of medalsmembership, and memories! There has been plenty to cheer about, including, player achievements, club success, community activity, new partnerships, the Badminton Scotland Awards, the return of The Scottish Open and much more.

In 2024, we look forward to continuing improvements across our overall offering by building on our relationships and connections with players, clubs, communities, coaches, officials and volunteers.

While many of us enjoy a break ahead the New Year, we want to wish everyone Happy Holidays and share with you some of our favourite moments of 2023! 



Whether you’re a regular club player, enjoy playing socially with friends or maybe you’re part of a community initiative… Badminton Scotland’s Individual Membership is for everyone.

The Individual Membership covers claims made against you for which you are legally liable resulting from any injury to a third party person or damage to third party property. The cover level we have in place is up to £10,000,000 any one occurrence.

There are also additional benefits such as early bird tickets and discounted tickets, player exclusives (on our monthly newsletter), plus you’ll be supporting the continued development of badminton in Scotland.

You can sign up for an individual membership through your club or by visiting this link.
