Anna Showan

Badminton England Accredited Level 2 Coach

I’ve played badminton since a young age, including playing for England at junior international level. As a senior player now, I play for Hampshire and also compete in circuit tournaments in singles and doubles. As a coach, I have been involved in the running of local junior clubs and assisting to coach Hampshire Junior County Squad. I am full of enthusiasm to help young players enjoy and develop their badminton skills. As a player myself, I know the importance of a coach and am excited to have fun and do a little hard work!
