Badminton | Pūkura

Badminton is a fun sport in which the entire family can participate together. The region has a reputation for producing some top representative players and encouraging people to come along to the clubs to develop their skills at all levels.

The Badminton Association promotes and fosters badminton in the region by managing the facilities, providing opportunities for coaching, umpiring, competition at local, school and national level.
