COME JOIN US!
WHO MAY JOIN THE CLUB?
We welcome junior badminton players, aged 9 to 17, of all abilities. Junior badminton players below the age of 13 might be also interested in Perth Junior Badminton Club - visit http://perthbadminton.org.uk/development/
Players aged 18 or older might like to join our adult club.
To ensure proper supervision, appropriate adult to children ratios, and compliance with appropriate child protection arrangements, you must apply to join the club and receive a confirmation of membership. Please do not turn up and expect to play at one of our sessions if you have not received a confirmation of membership.
WHEN DO YOU MEET?
Prior to the COVID-19 situation, Glenearn Junior Badminton Club met from 6:45pm to 7:45pm on Mondays, excluding school holidays. Our sessions have been suspended as a result of COVID-19. We will look to resume our sessions as soon as practical.
For further details, see our club nights page.
WHERE DO YOU MEET?
On Mondays, we meet at the Academy of Sport and Wellbeing at Perth College UHI.
For more information on how to find us, see our club nights page.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
For those of primary school age, the fee is £1 per night for each one-hour club session and for those of secondary school age, the fee is £2. The cost of hiring the courts and the cost of the shuttles we play with are included in the fee. Players may also borrow a racquet from us on club nights at no cost.
WHO WILL SUPERVISE THE CLUB SESSIONS?
Glenearn Junior Badminton Club is run by a number of volunteers under the auspices of Glenearn Badminton Club. We can provide details of all of our volunteers, all of who are experienced badminton players.
We comply with appropriate child protection arrangements, under guidance from Badminton Scotland. Our Child Protection Officer is Sandi MacDougall.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
Players should bring suitable attire to play badminton in, including shoes with non-marking soles.
Most of our members bring their own badminton racquet but we can lend you a racquet to use on the night - we will, however, be reviewing that prior to resuming our sessions in light of COVID-19.
We recommend you bring a drink. You do not need to bring shuttlecocks. The Club provides shuttles and the cost is included in the nightly fee.
CAN I JUST TURN UP?
Places at the junior club are limited to ensure we have an appropriate ratio of adults to children. You must apply to join the club and receive a confirmation of membership. Please do not turn up and expect to play at one of our sessions if you have not received a confirmation of membership.
WHAT ARE CLUB NIGHTS LIKE?
We aim for our weekly club nights to be friendly and relatively informal. And most of all, fun for everyone involved!
