Affiliated to our senior club is Buckley Junior Badminton Club, which meets at Buckley Leisure Centre every Friday from 5-7pm, ably led by our team of 7 coaches.
Newcomers aged 6-15 are always welcome.
Our basic goals are:
- to teach the rules of badminton
- to promote honesty, sportsmanship, and a sense of fair play
- to coach juniors according to their ability — rather than their age, size, or gender
- to encourage those with the skill and potential to enter competitive badminton — while respecting the wishes of those juniors who have no interest in competing at a higher level
The aim of the club is to teach children the fundamentals of badminton from an early age. We believe that they should be taught the correct technique from the start — so things like grips, footwork and strokes are shown right from the beginning.
However, we recognise that badminton should also be fun, so we blend technique with various fun games and exercises for the younger members.
For the better players, we participate in local leagues and tournaments.
