Our main Junior Club sessions are held on Mondays between 6.30pm and 9.00pm. Please get in touch and we will advise the best session for you.

More advanced players will be invited to play on Tuesdays from 6.00pm to 7.30pm and can train alongside our players who are members of the Performance Centre.

Junior Members have the option of progressing to the Senior Club or embarking on a pathway to the Hull and East Riding Performance Centre where they will benefit from the best coaches in the area and the opportunity to progress to the highest levels in the sport of badminton.

We have a number of Badminton England Registered coaches who supervise all sessions. All the coaches are DBS checked and in addition, have attended courses on Safeguarding and First Aid.

Junior players will have the opportunity to play in Local Junior Leagues and play in a variety of different tournaments.

Subscriptions for all Monday night sessions are £35.00 per term. Subscription for Tuesday night sessions are £42.00 per term. Payment in full for each term by the second Club Night of that term would be much appreciated.
