About Orpington Juniors About Bromley PC Coaching Activities Senior League GDPR

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.
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 2020/21 season is £240, which covers 29 weeks (58 hours) of coaching and represents the minimum (break-even) cost of hall hire plus shuttles. The majority of our coaches do not receive remuneration of any kind for their time and 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 8 to 17. All coaches and volunteers are DBS cleared at Enhanced Level and this is a rigorously-enforced aspect of our Child Protection Policy.
