BSC was formed as a not-for-profit club to provide free sports training for all residents of Blackburn. We started small, but with the enthusiasm and commitment of our members we aim to achieve our longer-term ambition of bringing competitive sports to all residents of Blackburn as a means of promoting community cohesion, physical health and social well being. We aim to engage youth and the wider local community to develop their talent and to adopt an ethos of true sportsmanship.
We aim to support community cohesion by welcoming individuals of all ages, faiths and cultural backgrounds. Through sport we will work to increase the skills, confidence and health of our young people and leave the future youth of Blackburn with a positive sporting legacy. Over time we will integrate a wide range of competitive sports to our programme. The club is always open for new registrations.
Dr Naren Kumar (President), Dr Tanveer Ahmed (Vice President) Sameer Kadiri (Secretary and Badminton Coach) and Moben Baghdadi (Treasurer) are keen to develop partnership links with other agencies and with other organisations and with Blackburn and Darwen Council in order to develop activities that will enhance community engagement and show that Blackburn is indeed a desirable place to live.
The Club has produced two Badminton Teams. The Blackburn Harpoons caters for adult enthusiasts and the Blackburn Junior Harpoons for those under the age of 16 years old. The club has recently expanded to support a Table Tennis Team and in the future we aim to include Squash, Volleyball and Football into our programme of sporting activities.
Our membership is consistently increasing with players of all ages who are passionate about badminton and who are now enjoying tremendous health and social benefits. Our members play in regular Sunday leagues under the able guidance of our proficient badminton player, coach and recently accredited badminton umpire Mr S Kadiri. We are keen to expand membership so if you would like to join us, don't hesitate, go to the contact page and get in touch!
