With more and more members in the department (4.8% more registered in 2024), badminton is on the rise, and intends to capitalize on the Olympic deadline to develop.

The Loiret badminton committee drew up its seasonal report on Friday evening in Chécy around Nathalie Maire, its president.

The leading department in the regional league in terms of the number of clubs (38) and members (3,173), Loiret is relying in particular on the many labels obtained by the department’s clubs this year. “Bad for all”, handicap, conviviality… are all distinctions awarded this season to Loiret associations, whose echo “on social networks and in newspapers” is a “pride” for Nathalie Maire.

Lack of slots

As the Paris Games approach, the committee wants to ride the wave of enthusiasm to attract new members, but is counting on the efforts of local authorities to combat the saturation of indoor time slots. “We have already had indoor hours taken away for football, normally outdoors,” was the reaction in the assembly…

On the financial side, the committee presented a lower forecast budget for the next financial year after a second year in the red by more than 30,000 euros, after the costly termination of an employee’s contract. No increase is expected in license fees, however. The next assessment will therefore be important, as the 2025 general meeting will have the status of an election for the presidency of the committee.

To remember from this sporting year: the beautiful silver medal won by Anis Castello Abdellaoui (CLTO) in May at the French championships in doubles junior, a great promise for the future for the Bad Loirétain.
