If you do not play on Saturdays or if you haven't visited our website before you may be unaware we, Emba Badminton Club, have a thriving junior Section.
It is often stated in many sport clubs that the Junior Members are the future of the club. It is also true for EBC. The Junior Members are essential to the success of EBC.
The Cyprus Badminton Federation with the assistance of EBC club is making great efforts to encourage young talent. It is hope that Cyprus will have a stronger representation Internationally, including at the future Olympic games.
It is not easy to produce a player or players of world class however EBC is determined to assist the Cyprus Federation in their quest for success.
EBC is appreciative of all the assistance that it receives from The Cyprus Federation, Members and parents. One of the greatest assets of EBC is the help that our Members and parents of Junior Members afford the club.
On Saturday 18th June our children were invited to a tournament at Promitheas Badminton Club. For most of our players this was their first competition, our opponent's having had experience of playing games in Nicosia.
Even though our players are young compared to the opposition they all performed exceptionally well. This resulted in some hard fought games.
Congratulations go to all our players with our own Joanna Georgiou coming 1st and Max Law coming 4th in the whole tournament.
Thank you goes to all our coaches for their time and effort, Connie, Maria, Virginia, Shirley, Yana, Dionne, Wei Hoa and Graham.

Can all interested members please email Don with a request for a place.
For those members not lucky enough to obtain a place on any course, Don may run the course again if mmbers are interested, preference may be given to members who have not attended a training course in the past.
I have added a few photos of our junior members enjoying Saturday session.
Volenteers are most valued, it can be testing but it is very rewarding, not only to the juniors.
We welcome all family members to the club.
We may even see a crocheted shuttlecock from one of the mums one day.
