Our juniors are coached every week by Vibul Wataranan, who is a UKCC Level 2 coach. Vibul started playing badminton when he was 13 at evening classes. He was inspired by an amazing coach who showed him how much fun and personal satisfaction could be achieved playing at any level. Instilled with a vision, Vibul founded Penguin Badminton Club, catering for players of all abilities in a fun and supportive environment. Reaching out to the wider community, Vibul has been teaching evening classes at Sutton College for 23 years and more recently coaching juniors in local schools for Premier League 4 Sport and Sport England, giving youngsters especially beginners as much opportunity as possible to get involved in the sport.
'B' and 'C' sections play with synthetic shuttlecocks and both 'A' sections play with feather shuttlecocks.
Fees for the full 2023-24 winter season are £145 for either 'C' or 'B' section and £195 for either 'A' section.
If someone joins mid-way through the season, a reduced fee applies. One free trial session is offered to new prospective members
The club is organised by volunteers and not run for profit.
Play normally stops during the Christmas and Easter school holidays but continues during the half-term holidays. Dates for the current season:
