A real boost for Badminton in Mid Glamorgan was launched last week with the first sessions in the new academy. This has been as a result of many hours of hard work by Vikki Jones and her colleagues in the county and which lays down a marker for other authorities in Wales.

Eddie O Neill commented

"this is great news for Badminton in Mid Glamorgan. Vikki has worked very hard in partnership with RCT to make this happen and I'm pleased to say with Badminton Wales along the way having an involvement. Mid Glamorgan were a real hotbed for Badminton in years gone by and I'm convinced that they will be again, Badminton Wales' vision is to have a centre such as this in each of the 22 local authorities in Wales providing an opportunity for young children to take up the sport and to excel and to help local clubs grow their numbers. The future looks very bright for badminton and I'm really pleased to be working with Vikki and RCT to help support this initiative."
