We are delighted to welcome Suffolk Saxons badminton squad to the #SamuraiFamily.
The newly formed team are the first to bring professional badminton to the county of Suffolk. The Saxons, who will compete in the AJ Bell National Badminton League, are supported by Abbycroft Leisure and several other sporting affiliations around Suffolk.
The season begins for the team on the 17th October away to Birmingham Lions, with their home campaign at the Ipswich Corn Exchange beginning on 7th November. It has been announced that Olympian Anthony Clarke will coach the squad, whilst Commonwealth Games silver medallists Andy Ellis and Sarah Walker have also joined the line-up.
Suffolk Saxons already hold a great passion and enthusiasm for their team, values that are held by everyone at Samurai, making the team and the internationally renowned teamwear company perfect partners.

Samurai look forward to providing the Saxons with quality kit and leisurewear to help them perform at their best and we look forward to seeing them in action soon”.
