Welcome to the East Sussex Junior Badminton Academy
ESJBA was the first ‘development’ group in the County and is now one of the largest in Sussex, providing a safe and professional environment for players that fall just below County acceptance. Each year many of our players go on to achieve the next step as a County player and some decide to continue their training with both ourselves and the Sussex county Juniors. ESJBA work closely with Sussex Junior Badminton and some of our coaches either work with or have worked with SCJB in the past.
ESJBA – OUR AIMS
ESJBA is a non-profit making organisation, run and organised by a management committee comprising of volunteers. We are affiliated to Badminton England. ESJBA incorporate the Districts and Boroughs of Wealden, Lewes, Hastings, Eastbourne, Rother, and Brighton.
ESJBA respond annually, both pro-actively and re-actively by meeting the fluctuating demands such as, numbers, ages and locations of young players within East Sussex.
The object of the Association is to encourage the development of badminton in East Sussex, and managing of its Squads. We also aim to support progression in badminton and ultimately this often means a player improving sufficiently to be selected for the Sussex County squads. Each year many of our players go on to achieve this next step and some decide to continue training with both ourselves and Sussex. We are there to provide the additional training with professional coaching for those players that require more experience and knowledge of the sport to pursue their ambitions.
