Thank you to all the ‘Friends of the Museum’ and people who have made donations to the Museum, your support enables us to purchase for the National Collection extremely rare badminton artefacts when they become available.

The Museum’s latest project is to replace all the non-museum standard display cases, this will enable us to display objects without dust pollution and UV light damage.

Please can you help with this project.
