East Sussex Junior Badminton Association
ESJBA is a non-profit making organisation, run and organised by a management committee comprising of all volunteers. We are affiliated to Badminton England and all our coaches are licensed with Badminton England and have Enhanced DBS/CRB clearance. ESJBA incorporate the Districts and Boroughs of Wealden, Lewes, Hastings, Eastbourne, Rother, and Brighton. ESJBA are one of the largest ‘development ‘ groups in Sussex, (recognised CDA status by SCB in 2015), providing a safe and professional environment for players that fall just below County acceptance. Every season many of our players reach the next step and gain entry into the County teams. Over the past seasons Country players have requested to continue their training with us, so each season we have had a number of County players within our Squads. Eligibility is determined on a ‘trials’ day set at the beginning of each season. From 2015 we extended our age older age group to U18. Our Squads train with feather shuttlecocks, meet fortnightly for a two hour session, in three towns in East Sussex and are offered a Squad shirt and/or personalized ‘hoodie’ track top. Our Child Protection Policy is in accordance with Badminton
Fortnightly, two hour sessions from end of Septembe rto April each season. Currently held at three locations within East Sussex. We have three committee meetings throughout the season.
