Penarth and District Badminton Club is starting up a brand new junior section on the 6th November, 2015 at Penarth Leisure Centre. The junior section, which will be called Vale and Penarth Juniors, will run every Friday from 7pm - 8pm. It will be run by a qualified coach who will also have the the support of a few young leaders who play at the senior club. The junior section is open to all children aged 7+ and will cost £3 per session, however the first session is FREE. 
With the assistance of Badminton Wales and Vale Sports Development Team, the club successfully applied for Community Chest Funding in order to develop the junior section and to help engage more young people into the sport.   

Karen Davies from the Vale of Glamorgan Sports Development Team commented,

"It is great to have a brand new junior badminton club in the Vale of Glamorgan especially in the Penarth area. Badminton is part of our multi-skills festivals and is also hugely popular in the 5 x 60 programme so it will be great that the children participating have a club that they can go onto if they wish to develop their badminton skills further."
