At Millfield we cater for players of all abilities and ages. The squad provides both boys and girls teams with matches against other schools in the local area. The most able players play in the badminton squad and take part in the Somerset Schools Badminton League. The squad train three times a week under the tutelage of Badminton Coach Karen Lloyd. In addition, the Somerset County Coach, James Elkin, comes to train the school’s top players once a week. Recreational badminton is also available on Wednesdays and Saturdays for players just wishing to keep fit and have fun. Junior badminton also runs within the Millfield Activity Programme (MAP) programme on Fridays for those wanting to improve their game for squad consideration.
Promising players of all ages can try out for the badminton squad. Boys and girls teams play matches against other schools and there is a pathway to county selection. There are sessions on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays with Millfield coaches. The Somerset County Coach, James Elkin, also runs an additional development session. We work closely with Millfield Prep School, offering pathways for those in Year 7 and 8 to train at Millfield.
