Lee has been playing badminton since he was 13 years old and is now, as he states, quite a bit older! He played badminton for Yorkshire and Wales, and has coached Yorkshire U16s, Scotland U13s and England U18s – and has even coached an Olympic Silver Medallist! He has a UKCC Level 2 coaching qualification and is proud to say that over the past 35 years of coaching he has coached all levels of badminton from beginners to Olympic standard, and from kids as young as 3 years old all the way up to the over 80s.
Lee has always had a passion for playing and coaching badminton, and rarely thinks about anything else (except Leeds United). He hopes that his infectious enthusiasm can help learners to reach new levels and achieve their badminton dreams.
Assistant Coach – Mike Laing
Here is a bit of a bio from Mike – Hello all, glad to be here. My name is Mike. Badminton has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. If I’m not around a badminton court, you can usually find me up in the hills, in the swimming pool or running around Perth. I’ve always believed sport as being a fantastic way of bringing people together and especially to allow young people opportunity for personal achievement and develop as a person. Learning important lessons like sportsmanship, fair play, and respect for one’s self and those around them.
Susan Berry is the Treasurer for Perth Junior Badminton Coaching Club.
