ACTBA Business Plan 2019-2021

The ACTBA Business Plan 2019-2021 was prepared and endorsed by the Executive Committee following feedback by ACTBA member clubs and members.  It will guide the operations of the ACTBA in six key focus areas, including: coaching and training; participation in competitions; growth in membership; sponsorship opportunities; promoting inclusive and safe playing environments; and political support ahead of the 2020 ACT Election for a dedicated badminton facility in the ACT. 


Greetings from the 2020 ACTBA President, Olaf Schuermann

I was elected as the 2020 ACTBA President at the 2019 AGM on 8 December 2019.  Unfortunately, Vikram was unable to continue in the role due to other commitments.  I wish to thank him and his Committee for all their good work in 2019.  I am thankful that the Executive Team will continue in their roles in 2020, which will provide for the necessary continuity in implementing the 2019-20 Business Plan. In this context, I particularly note the lead Alan is taking on growing the pool of ‘Shuttle Time’ coaches in the ACT and Brideen’s lead in managing the ACT’s tournaments.  A particular focus of mine (reflecting the growth in our sport in the ACT), will be working with ACT political leaders and officials in the lead up to the 2020 ACT Election in order to secure funding for two multi-use indoor sports facilities and a commitment to co-fund a dedicated badminton facility.

2019 President’s Report

On behalf of ACTBA, I would like to present this year’s President’s Report. This year was always going to be a year of change and transition for ACTBA, with only Robynne Mah continuing in the Secretary role.  As a new Executive Committee, we had a lot to learn and do. We also needed to quickly bring together a coherent understanding of the key issues facing our sport and affiliated clubs.
