Club Information for Members - 2020 – 2021 Season:
Dear Parents and Members
Hello to all and we hope you are all keeping well and safe.
As you will be aware, there is a significant amount of uncertainty across the country right now as a consequence of the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
What are we doing
In relation to the running of our junior badminton club, the coaches and club officers at Lightwater Juniors have been closely monitoring the situation for a number of weeks and we will continue to do so. We receive regular updates from Badminton England and our local badminton district, the Aldershot and Camberley District Badminton League, about the situation as well as keeping in contact with Lightwater Leisure centre regarding the venue.
What changes are being considered
At the tail end of last season the club had recognised that we need to offer our members smaller training groups, more active court time and increased resource/time allocation to 1:1 coaching. We are pleased to announce that we have already planned significant structural changes to implement these benefits whereby we split the morning into two sessions. Each session will be 1.5 hour periods and your child(ren) will be invited to attend one of the two sessions; either:
Session 1 – 10.00am-11.30am
Session 2 – 11.30am-1.00pm
More details will follow in the coming weeks, along with further information on how we will adapt to the new COVID-19 requirements, taking into account the safety and wellbeing of our members and coaches.
When do we expect the club restart
We are planning to be ready and are hopeful for a start in time for the new season (Note: The Aldershot & Camberley League have indicated October earliest). We will keep you informed as the situation becomes clearer and when we can give you firm dates and have recalculated the new subscription fee.
What do we need you to do
To assist us in preparing and planning for the new season, we need to understand how many teams we can enter into the league and to enable us to achieve the correct balance for the revised session structure. Therefore, we would like some feedback on how many of our members are planning to re-join next season.
To do this, we kindly ask you as current parents/members to complete the following short (I minute) survey by the 28th June 2020 (15th July 2020 latest).

We thank you in advance for your time in completing and submitting the survey and don’t forget that you can also be kept up to date with the latest information by visiting our website www.lightwaterjuniorbadmintonclub.co.uk
We look forward to receiving your survey responses as soon as possible and hopefully next season!
