Who Supports the Sport of Badminton in Yokohama?

The City of Yokohama has a number of organizations and schools that have made significant contributions by conducting community-based activities and hosting tournaments and other events, as well as many competent instructors.
This section highlights some of these organizations and schools that are committed to developing world-class players and helping children achieve spiritual and physical growth through sports.

Gumisawa Badminton Club – Totsuka Ward

http://www12.ocn.ne.jp/~nacayan/

Since its foundation in 1982, the Gumisawa Badminton Club has provided opportunities to play badminton as a lifetime sport. We launched a separate junior program in 2004 targeted at kindergarten children and elementary school pupils. We offer lessons three times a week using the school facilities open to the public. The purpose of this club is to help children achieve growth and learn to act as a group by playing badminton, as well as expand the wave of exchange through interactions with local residents.

Manager: Mr. Hiroaki Nakayama

Yokohama Hakusan Junior Sports Club – Midori Ward

It has been 23 years since the Yokohama Hakusan Junior Sports Club was established. Under its motto of “group togetherness,” the club focuses not only on skills and techniques but on educational purposes as well including teaching children to respect good manners and exchange proper greetings and having older club members take care of younger ones. Members of the club have participated in national tournaments many times. Our contribution is not limited to excellent achievements in the sport of badminton but also includes active participation in local community activities.

Representative: Mr. Tatsunori Sonoki

Yokohama Senior High School – Kanazawa Ward

http://www.yokohama-jsh.ac.jp

Since Yokohama Senior High School has many competitive sports clubs, members of the badminton club can use all of their courts only three times a week. While it does not have a privileged environment, the club has had its members take part in Kanto regional tournaments and inter-high school championships many times. With the club attended by members of different levels from beginners to famous players, its motto is “think and act on your own.” All the members actively engage in practice in order to keep improving their performance.

Coach: Mr. Masaru Ebina

Nippon Sport Science University – Aoba Ward

http://www.nittai.ac.jp

Our club boasts a tradition of producing a number of Olympians and national champions, some of them being current students of the university. We are working hard together routinely to improve ourselves in the spirit of union and cooperation. We have great facilities here, and our goal is to achieve full potential of our athletic performance during the four years at the university.
Since 2008, we have hosted a “step-up school” aimed at coaching players who belong to local clubs.
