Boost for badminton in Hawke's Bay


About Badminton New Zealand

Badminton New Zealand inspires Kiwis to ‘love badminton for life’ by growing, developing and supporting badminton in all communities across New Zealand. Badminton New Zealand delivers national development programmes for Kiwi kids, holds national events for thousands of players and provides a pathway for coaches, officials, administrators and volunteers to engage in badminton.

What the grant went towards

Funding received from Grassroots Trust that contributed $20,000 towards salary costs have enabled Badminton New Zealand to engage a Community Manager in Hawke’s Bay.

What this meant for the organisation and its members

Badminton is thriving in Hawke’s Bay thanks to a Community Manager who is dedicated to fostering the sport and supporting the players across the region. The Community Manager ensures the delivery of programmes and initiatives that strengthen the player base and enable the club to function on an operational level.

Grassroots Trust Limited

Grassroots Trust was established in March 2003 primarily to foster the amateur game of Rugby Union within New Zealand.  Our focus has grown to support other sport, community and education groups. Grassroots Trust has venues in Auckland, Bay of Plenty, Hawkes Bay and Waikato regions. In the financial year ending March 2018, Grassroots Trust provided $13,251,578 to local communities.
