We value the support of parents and are keen to try and involve them in the club, welcoming all parents to coaching sessions and competitions. We hold an open evening at the end of each season with a senior / junior tournament where you can meet club members and officials and find out more about the club.
Progression To The Senior Badminton Club
As our junior members become more proficient they are invited to attend the senior club for the first hour each week, free of charge, to further develop their skills and experience. We are proud that a growing number of our junior players have progressed though our coaching to become full members of the senior club, including some who have now been selected to play in the senior teams!
