Update – 20th September 2020
The Heath Coaches are looking into restarting our Junior Club for our current club members. However, this is all dependent on lockdown measures. Hopefully, we will be able to get some players back by the end of October.
We will not be able to take on any new members at this current time.
The Junior Heath Badminton Club meets weekly at 6pm on Wednesdays. Children from approximately 8 to 18 years of age are coached by Level 2 trained coaches who have extensive experience of competitive league level badminton. We have two groups that run from 6 pm to 7pm (beginners) and from 7 pm to 8pm (improvers). Tournament matches are organised with other junior clubs once every two months and the older players are encouraged to participate in the Senior (adult) club as they gain experience. Racquets and shuttles are provided. Participants must wear non slip, non marking trainers and suitable clothing for sport. The Coaches are Linda, Mo and Eleri. The Junior Club plays at the Heath Hospital Sports and Social Club from September to June.
If your child is interested in joining our junior club, it is important that they have some experience in playing badminton socially and are able to make contact with the shuttle in a short rally. This makes our coaches lives easier when teaching the correct method of making contact with the shuttle.
Currently, membership is full for this year for our improvers groups and limited numbers in our beginners group (September 2019/20). We are happy to add you to our waiting list and forward you details of other clubs in the South Wales area. Please contact us by using our contact us page for more information or to add to the waiting list.
