It has involved cooperation between Aberdeenshire Council, Ellon Community Centre, Aberdeenshire Sports Council, GlenYthan Badminton Club and Alan Middleton Trust.
The badminton coaching club is open to children aged 11-17 years and is run by qualified coaches and committee members of the GlenYthan Senior Badminton Club in conjunction with Aberdeenshire Sports Council.
It will not be replacing the afterschool club on a Wednesday afternoon which will continue under Tina Kearney, but will act as the “next step up feeder club” prior to joining the GlenYthan seniors.
Places are limited to a maximum of 32 juniors who will be assessed into 4 categories. Raquets and shuttles will be available to everyone.
