Junior and Adult Coaching

Junior Coaching

As the fastest racket discipline, badminton is a fast, demanding and exhilarating sport, which requires fitness, concentration and determination.  Children who play badminton can develop high levels of strength, speed and agility, make lasting friendships, and have a great deal of fun.

The Cambridgeshire Badminton Association seeks to encourage more children into the sport, and to increase levels of participation.

For more information about the various competitive opportunities for junior badminton around the County, please refer to the Badminton England Juniors Information Document.

You can view a map of Junior Badminton Clubs in Cambridgeshire on Google Maps, which identified the location and details of junior clubs, and contact information.  If your child is interested in having some experience of badminton to see if they would like it, then choose a club near you and contact them to explore the opportunities.

Anyone involved with junior clubs around the County which are not included on this map, or who wish to amend any information contained in it, should email webmaster@cambridgeshirebadminton.org.

Information about national Junior Badminton competitions can be found on the Badminton England website.
