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 2nd Anders Nielsen Challenge took place at the National Badminton Centre, Milton Keynes on July 14th 2018 and allowed England’s top juniors to enjoy a day playing a team of past masters. The day is invaluable for the kids providing high quality matches, coaching and insightful advice from some of our top former players. We certainly hope that many of these talented kids go on to achieve senior international success!
