Benefits for the Community

It is well noted that community members take pride in seeing local athletes shine. The QBA desires to provide the opportunity for local badminton players and coaches to improve and excel at a national level. In doing so, it provides the means that allows the community to both identify and support their athletes. This will contribute to an enhanced collective image and positive outlook for local citizens. In that sense, every community member has the opportunity to benefit from those athletes who represent their suburb, city and state.

The QBA delivers badminton to the community through:

  • School HPE classes (grade 4 to 10)
  • Regional sport education tours
  • Local camps and clubs
