Junior Friday Nights
Carrying on the noble tradition of BP Williams’ engagement for youngsters (Twenty Juniors and Friday Shuttlers), there is coaching, playing, tournaments and other fun stuff aimed at players of all abilities aged 7 to 17 years old. $4 per player per night, discounts for siblings available.
Note that Juniors Friday Nights is not an affiliated club, but a regular OBA event. All other clubs offer memberships which affiliate its members to the association.
United Badminton Club play at the Otago Badminton Centre (Badminton Hall) in St Kilda, Dunedin. Club nights go from mid March to the end of September. The club plays on courts 3, 4, and 5 and the club room is at the rear of the front hall. Members old and new are always welcome.
Our club formed in 1932 by twenty players (who broke away from the Dunedin Club) and they called the club Dunedin Twenty, this name being changed to Twenty Club in 1950.
Over the past the club has never failed to support Badminton Otago in all its activities, providing many members for the OBA Management Committee as well as players for the representative teams at all levels. The odd player has even represented New Zealand!
