Cardiff and Vale Junior Badminton League

The Cardiff and Vale Junior League is going from strength to strength. The league started on 9th October 2016 after a consultation meeting with the junior badminton clubs in Cardiff & Vale. The clubs involved included Penarth Juniors, Heath Juniors, Llanishen Juniors, Arches Juniors and Vale & Penarth Juniors.  It was decided to start with two age groups, under 13's and under 17's, and would be played on the second Sunday of alternative months.  With the support of the coaches and volunteers from the clubs the league has proved to be very successful.  

One parent commented that "this is a great event, it's just what is needed as the children are training every week and now they have regular matches to play.  The morning was very well run and it was good to see the children playing so many matches against players from different clubs."

One coach commented that "having the junior league will help raise the standard of play in the junior clubs as the players come back to training and want to learn how to play better so they can win more matches in the league."

Following on from the success of the Cardiff & Vale Junior League it is hoped that more junior leagues will be set up across Wales, with a view to ideally having the winners going through to a National Junior League Finals.
