In Fife, the FSBA offer school pupils from both the primary and secondary setting opportunities to participate in Badminton.

These opportunities range from fun, participation sessions to performance / competitive pathways which provide various environments for pupils to develop their badminton abilities.

A pupils first introduction to badminton is very often through curricular based activities and then schools accessing "Big Hit” Badminton festivals for primary-aged pupils. Many pupils then develop their interest through an extra curricular club based within their primary or secondary school or a community club session based within their local community. Pupils are also able to access competitive school festivals within Fife and nationally.
