Although our Badmintots Bats are safe, parental supervision is required for children under the age of 4 to prevent misuse and braking which may result in choking hazards.
My child loves Badmintots, how do I make sure they can continue next term?
Badmintots is run on a first come first served basis, we aim to display the dates for the upcoming sessions as far in advance as possible, this is to give as much time as possible for booking.
Are the sessions fully insured?

Are your coaches trained?
All our coaches have been through detailed in-house training and are Badminton England qualified; CRB checked, first aid trained and have been undergone child safeguarding training.

For our 4 – 5-year-olds, the session lasts 45 minutes.
For our 5 – 6-year-olds, the session lasts 45 minutes.
Parent participation is essential for the both age groups, comfortable clothing and trainers would be ideal so the floor is not damaged.
How serious is the coaching element?
The most important factor at Badmintots is that children have fun and gain enjoyment from the session. For the older classes, we do start teaching slightly more badminton specific skills such as footwork, using badminton racquets etc however this is done using many different techniques and games.
Will my child automatically move up to the higher group?
Our online booking system doesn’t automatically move your child up to the next age group. If the classes you attend are busy, it is worth adding your child to the waiting list sooner rather than later by emailing directly to ensure you are notified as soon as there is a place. If there are places available, please call our office or your local contact and we will be able to transfer your child to the older age group.
