Thank you for making Matthew feel so welcome and able to join in with a sport that he knew very little about.  I am so pleased to have found EBA and the inclusion and involvement of the team with Matthew means that he has really enjoyed it.

What players & parents think

When I first took Blair to EBA it was very clear to me that the coaches were very organised and Blair has had some excellent coaching and support since then.

Training with EBA is very enjoyable as I met lots of friends and playing with different players. I feel full of fun after each session.

EBA has managed to find the right balance for Deepti between the intensity of training and competition versus the pure joy of playing the game.

Frequently asked questions

Our sessions are tailored for children aged 5 to 17 years. We organize sessions by age to ensure appropriate coaching and peer interaction.

Please check each session to see which ages they are.

If your child would like to attend regularly our monthly membership gives you a reserved space and discounted fees. The cost is based on the type and how many sessions per week.

As a member you can also swap individual dates. Can’t make your child’s usual session one week? Rebook an alternative session.

Guaranteed space at your sessions

Flexibility to swap between different sessions

Easy to pause/cancel

How much is a membership?

If you’re only joining occasionally you can pay per session. Our booking page can be found at book.edinburghbadmintonacademy.co.uk where you can select individual dates.

Please be aware that without a membership you will not have a reserved space each week. Over 95% of our juniors players are members to ensure they have a place at sessions.

Coaching – £15/session
Matchplay – £10/session

Participants should wear comfortable sportswear appropriate for active movement and trainers. Please also bring a refillable water bottle. Shuttles are provided.

We ask players to buy their own rackets after their first couple of sessions. If it’s their first time attending, the coach will have a limited number of rackets to lend out.

Each coaching session lasts 1 hour 30 minutes. During this time, your child will learn various badminton skills including grips, footwork, basic strokes, and more advanced tactics as they progress, all under the guidance of our fully qualified and friendly coaches.

We also include plenty of time for matchplay where they can develop tactics and consistency.
