The Bolton Badminton League was established in the 1940s and began its life as part of the Bolton Sunday School Federation with matches being played in local church halls.

The previous Chair of the Bolton Badminton League is featured along with many other Bolton Sports Heroes on the Spirit of Sport Trophy at the round-about at the entrance to the Bolton Arena in Middlebrook, Horwich.
