Orpington Junior Badminton Club was established in 1965 to provide coaching for young people aged 8 and above. Its success and reputation has grown rapidly over the years, welcoming all young people independent of geographic location, background, age, or ability level. We cater not only for those who are ambitious and wish to progress up the badminton ladder, but also those whose needs are more social, fitness or recreational, and the club has adopted a strong ethos in seeking to cater for all players' needs and ambitions.
 
OJs organises its own in-house tournament at the end of each coaching year.
 
Orpington Juniors has always been a non-profit making coaching organisation. We hire the Harris Academy Sports Hall in Orpington as the main home for all our coaching and playing activities, a location which has a large 3-court badminton hall with halogen lighting. The annual subscription for the 2021/22 season is £250, which covers 33 weeks (66 hours) of coaching and represents the minimum (break-even) cost of coaching staff, hall hire plus shuttles. The administration of the Club is entirely volunteer-based, yet it represents one of the largest, and most qualified, coaching teams in Kent. Our current junior membership is 100+ players, distributed approximately evenly across a 6-class structure, and with the age range from around 7 to 17. All coaches and volunteers are Enhanced DBS cleared and this is a rigorously-enforced aspect of our Child Protection Policy.
 
The Club has always been very popular and as such operates a waiting list for new members. Further information on vacancies within the Club can be obtained by emailing the Club Secretary (janupson@orpingtonjuniors.com).
