Courts for HIRE!
Medway Badminton Association
Medway Junior Badminton

Medway Junior Badminton has 'Premier Club' status. This means that Medway Junior Badminton is one of the clubs leading the way in setting new standards for badminton clubs. The standard we have achieved demonstrates that the club has strong coaching and effective management in place and that we take equality and child protection issues seriously. All our coaches are first aid qualified.

Coaching sessions are held every Saturday between 9am and 3pm. Coaching sessions are graded on ability and several skills have to be gained before progression into the next level. We have a progressive coaching program to ensure that we cater for the beginner right through to county and club level.

Qualified coaches and several assistant coaches are present at each session, to help you gain the skills necessary to play badminton. Each session consists of a warm up, learning skills and shots, a break for quick refreshments, followed by game play and a cool down.
 
We currently have a waiting list to join the junior sessions. For those of you currently on the waiting list we are hiring Chatham Grammar School for Girls Sports hall starting on the 21st April 2018.
 
All our junior club matches are late this year. We have already played a home match against Hastings, our next home match will be against Hilden Hornets on the 12th May, 12pm start. The next match is due to be held in June. 
 
To gain the best experience regular attendance is essential.
Please contact us on 01634 572187 or email us at mbabadminton@btconnect.com to add your name to the list. 
 
 

Sessions

Session 1 9.00am - 10.30am Beginners
All juniors begin their time at MJB in the beginners session; it gives us a chance to see how they play and what experience they already have (if any). This session teaches the juniors basic footwork patterns and hitting techniques to build a solid base for when moving onto higher levels of play.
 
Session 2 10.30am - 12.00pm Improvers
This session is for improvers, a little more advanced than the beginners session, learning game play and basic tactics.

Session 3 12.00pm - 1.30pm Intermediate
This session is for intermediate players, practicing and developing the skills you have learned, developing confidence and learning all the time.

Session 4 1.30pm - 3.00pm Advanced
This session is for more advanced players; in this group you will be using everything that you have learned so far (in the other sessions) and putting it into drills and routines to help improve consistency and decision making when under pressure.

Fees per person£5 per week. Payment for the sessions are due on the first Saturday of each calendar month. Please ask for more details. We will be starting a monthly Direct Debit system at some point in 2018.
 
PLEASE NOTE: For those of you who are joining us to play at Chatham Grammar School for Girls Sports Hall the fee will be different to those who have joined us at Medway Badminton home venue
