Neptunus serves BADMINTON England

Temporary structures specialist Neptunus has been recognised as an official supplier to BADMINTON England for the London Grand Prix Gold event, in partnership with adidas.

Held at the Copper Box Arena, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, from 1-6 October, the annual Badminton event will be a great opportunity to see live sport at the site of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games once again.

Neptunus has been tasked with supplying the National Governing Body with additional temporary space to house a final warm-up court for the athletes and an interaction zone.

In a break from tradition at a badminton event, the final warm-up court will be visible to the public, so that they can observe the final minutes of training before the athletes take to the courts. Neptunus will be constructing one of its versatile Alu Halls for this purpose, which is well suited to sporting applications such as this thanks to its modular design, robust exterior and solid, level flooring.

Nicola Moloney, head of major events and competitions at BADMINTON England, said: “We are delighted to have secured Neptunus as an official supplier for the London Grand Prix Gold event.
“Their help and support with providing us with a structure for our final warm up court and interaction zone will add great quality to the event and give it a new edge compared with previous badminton tournaments.”

April Trasler, Neptunus’ managing director said: “We are looking forward to working with BADMINTON England at this prestigious event and to being back in Queen Elizabeth Park after spending so much time working there for the Olympic Games last year. 

“This move will also strengthen our ties with sport as a supplier of relocatable sports buildings.”
