Full Name
The Charlotte Badminton Club encourages junior kids to train on Saturdays between 8AM to 2PM on Saturdays. The Junior program exists for the spotting of talent and is driven towards competitive play and NOT recreational play. All Juniors start out at the Beginner level on Saturdays. Once a junior reaches competitive level, the Junior is recommended for membership to the club, with or without guardian membership, to play during NON PEAK hours on weekdays. If the Junior has reached Advanced level, the Junior may be recommended for play during regular hours on weekdays. Non adherence to this path automatically disqualifies the Junior for training by coaches/leads and negates the chances of getting a membership and play with adults during regular times.

Level Coach/Lead Time Court #
Beginner/Intermediate Coach Neel/Vivek/Coach Alex 10 AM - 12 Noon Court 2, 3
Advanced Vivek 12 Noon - 2pm Court 2, 3

  • Beginner and Intermediate Juniors are not allowed to play during regular CBC PEAK TIMES on Monday , Wednesday and Friday, irrespective of type of membership held(Junior/Family/etc) at CBC.

ONLY Coach/Leads may call the Intermediate Level Junior to the court as a part of the training curriculum.
  • Court #1, next to primary entrance door may be used by parents who are coaching their own kids, based on availability and the discretion of the coach/leads.
