Chew Valley Badminton Club has a thriving Junior section with over 100 players from 6 to 18 years old of all standards from complete beginners to county players.

As well as high quality badminton coaching, the club offers juniors the opportunity to take part in competitive badminton suitable for their own level of development, from fun tournaments as part of the regular junior sessions, to local junior leagues with matches against other clubs, pathways to county badminton and regional and national tournaments.

Our coaching team is led by Will Mellersh.

Coaching sessions take place at Chew Valley leisure centre on Tuesdays at 6pm and 7pm, and Saturdays and 9am, 10.30am and 12 noon.

Places must be pre-booked via the website shop.

For more information, please email the club secretary, Judith Ogden at secretary@chewvalleybadmintonclub.org.uk.

Safeguarding

While children are at training sessions, they are the responsibility of the coaches while they are in the sports hall. Before they arrive in the hall and after they leave the hall, they are the responsibility of their parents or carers, so please ensure that your drop off and pick up arrangements are clear to everyone involved – for example, if a child should not leave the hall before their parent or carer arrives to collect them.

The Club Welfare Officer is Carol Jackson, who can be contacted at safeguarding@chewvalleybadmintonclub.org.uk.

Information about safeguarding can be found at the Badminton England website.
