I am a qualified Badminton England Level 2 coach, based in King’s Lynn, Norfolk.

I have had over 30 years experience coaching badminton in West Norfolk, and have played in the Ouse Valley and Peterborough & Hunts leagues for many years. I started playing as a junior back in the early 80s and represented Norfolk as a junior and senior.

Janis Baker Badminton July 2017I have run the YMCA Junior Badminton club for 20 years and it has now expanded to include the Docking & Clenchwarton clubs. It has Badminton England and Sport England Clubmark accreditation, which is assessed annually.

As a coach, I am registered with Badminton England and regularly CRB checked, so I am fully insured to coach adults and children in clubs, leisure centres and schools.

All volunteers who help me at all the various clubs are also registered and fully DBS checked
