For juniors (anyone under 19) wanting to start playing or further develop their skills, we can offer a variety of sessions in various areas of the greater Christchurch area.

Shuttle Time After School Programs:  these are a term by term program taken by our qualified Shuttle Time Coaches. Click here to register

Clubs: many of our affiliated badminton clubs run a juniors section especially to cater for youth.  These are a coached/supervised session, and generally run throughout the season.  The structure and details will vary between clubs.

You are able to go to after school programs and a club, or just one or the other – no restrictions!
