The Anders Foundation was formed as a legacy to Anders Nielsen who sadly lost his life in 2010 after a year-long fight with cancer.


To celebrate Anders' determination to succeed and admirable work ethic, highlighted by the international success he achieved in his Badminton career, we aim to support young people of all abilities, both disabled and able bodied, to achieve their sporting goals.


The Anders Foundation will award monies throughout the UK to able bodied and disabled individuals and clubs / institutions on a case by case basis assessed by the trustees and in conjunction with selected experts from within the designated sport or activity. Badminton will feature prominently given Anders’ background but all worthwhile causes, such as Riding For The Disabled for example, will be considered.

The Anders Nielsen Challenge

Anders Nielsen G

The Anders Foundation partnered by Yonex UK and Badminton England is delighted to support the Anders Nielsen Challenge designed to bring together England's most talented youngsters to compete against a team of former players and receive valuable feedback. More information can be found on facebook at www.facebook.com/AndersNielsenChallenge. This is a unique match featuring some of England's greatest former players and top domestic champions who, between them, have so much experience and advice to offer the kids. The former players all give up their time willingly to help the future of English badminton but obviously events like this incur significant costs so any donations to The Anders Foundation would be most welcome and can contribute to more Challenges in the future. Thank you to everyone who helped make this happen. Jurgen and Nick
