The clubs below are in addition to the sessions run as county development cells that are listed at the bottom of the Junior Development Pathway page. County development cells are often open to new members and can be popular with players because they tend to last for 2hrs, which is longer than the other junior clubs listed below or click here to view a list of Junior Clubs by area.

Unicorns Junior Badminton Club (Taunton area)
Venue: Taunton School Sports Hall, Staplegrove Road, Taunton, Somerset, TA2 6AD
Days and times: Fridays 6:00 to 7:30pm
This is a popular junior Badminton club in the Taunton area. We offer an opportunity for children and young people to learn how to play badminton, to reach a good standard of play, and to progress into club or league or county-level play.
• Players range from (roughly) 8yrs up to the end of school Year 11 (16yrs).
• In each 1½ hour session we have about 60 mins of warm up and coached activities followed by about 30 mins of competitive or conditioned games play. The aim is to enjoy playing and learn how to play better.
As juniors reach a suitable standard of play to benefit from the experience, they are invited to stay on after 7:30 for an additional hour to join in play with the senior club members and to play in our competitive league teams.
