Badminton is a growing sport at AJHS and is enjoyed by students from years 7-10. Students do not have to have any experience in badminton to get involved. There are opportunities for both experienced and beginners to take part in both the badminton club and the competitive competition.
We will look to start in term 2 subject to Covid restictions. This is an oppurtunit for students to come and have a go at badminton over 6 weekly sessions.
We enter teams in the Badminton North Harbour Intermediate and Junior College Competitions which are played in term 3. The venue for the competition is either Badminton North Harbour, located in Bond Cresent, Foresthill or at Active Badminton located in Apollo Drive, Mairangi Bay. This is a team competition with a minimum of 4 players required in each team. Students play singles and doubles. Teams are selected from trials held at school. As we normally have a number of teams, all players that register will be selected in a team.
