Looking for coaches/club in suffolk/cambs/essex
Well this is my first post here but I have been trawling the forums for some time.
Basically I am looking for a coach in the suffolk/cambs/essex and perhaps bedfordshire area to help improve my game.
Or alternatively I am looking for a club that also practices drills etc rather than just plays games on club nights.
So abit about my level of play.
I used to play county as a junior but then broke my wrist very badly about 12-13 years ago and lost the bottle to pick up a racket after that until about 2 years ago.
I currently play for a club in the braintree and newmarket leagues but am more than a little rusty and want to improve my current play and fitness to further levels.
Does anyone one know of a good club/coach that I can contact??
I dont necessarily want to play matches for them but would like to train with them etc and there to be players of greater ability than me so that I can learn from them.
Hopefully I can find somewhere soon and make contacts for the new season.
Thanks in advance

Where in Suffolk are you based? There are several good clubs in Cambridge and Bury St.Edmunds. If Ipswich or Kings Lynn is closer than YMCA and Kings Lynn clubs play at a high standard and have coaches.
Also, Ray Lerney is based in Suffolk and is a top quality coach. He takes the Badminton England Coaching Courses and runs a coaching cell just outside Bury St.Edmunds. Let me know where you are and how far you can travel and I'll have a think about some possible names for you.

I am based about 15 miles from Bury St edmunds on the way to haverhill.
But also spend a large amount of time in st neots cambs. Thats why my search area was able to be so wide.
The name rings a bell for the coach but I cant think where from.
Travel isnt really an issue in that I will go anywhere from colchester/chelmsford/ipswich/thetford/cambridge/bury st edmunds/huntingdon/peterborough/milton keynes and anywhere between and around those places.
So hopefully I will find somewhere

I live just outside Newmarket.
I play in the Bury league for a club in Bury St.Edmunds and in the Cambridgeshire
league for Littleport near Ely. I'm also in the Suffolk County Vets squad.
The Bury club closes for the summer but Littleport play all year. When the season ends some friends and I sometimes arrange games in Cambridge. So, Yes, I'd be up for a game. Feel free to send me a PM.
