Our Junior Club is all about fun! If you want to make friends, learn the nation’s most played racquet sport, access professional coaching and have a lot of fun along the way, then come and join us. Truro Junior Badminton Club exists to offer a safe environment in which to learn the great sport of badminton for young people up to the age of 18. We are a section of the Truro Badminton Club and hope that young players will progress into the senior club.
A typical club night will begin with a warm-up routine to loosen you up, then a practice session in either a stroke technique or tactics, followed by play sessions in which you can put into effect what we hope you have just learned! We will guide you as you play and sometimes join in too, if space permits. On most evenings we will select your partners for the game or for the evening; we do this to try to get a balance so that young or new players are helped rather than put off – and it means that everyone gets to know each other quickly, making ours a very friendly atmosphere.
We want young people to come along and enjoy our sport and we will always do our best to help you achieve as high a standard of play as you are able. This does not mean that we put pressure on anyone to do more than they are capable of; you progress at your rate, not anyone else’s. As we said before, the fun element is the most important thing. We have had members who have stayed with us for several years and never became serious players; while others have made great strides and gone on to represent the club or their county. This is a club for all standards and all ability levels.
