JUNIOR PROGRAMMES

We offer programmes for junior players who are enthusiastic, talented and keen to develop their game. Click the links below to find out more about what we offer for different groups of players

 

The programme is for young players (U11) that we recognise to have potential to reach a high level as they progress through the sport. EBA is looking to develop the next generation of badminton talent with the aim for these players to be competing nationally in the ranked tournament circuit (from age group U11 onwards). We also aim and expect for all of the players on this programme to reach Lothian county standard as a minimum. 

 

The focus of training at this age is mostly on basic skills, co-ordination and movement but most importantly fun, enjoyment and engagement in the sport. 
 

For keen, enthusiastic and promising U11 players who have potential to develop to a high level.
