HBC Youth Program Mission


The Houston Badminton Club welcomes badminton players in the Houston Texas area. We see the promotion of the game of badminton as one of our club's primary responsibilities. We have a strong association with the Houston Parks Department and their Fonde facility is our sole playing venue.

The HBC Youth Program focus in introducing and developing the badminton sport in the youth and develop them to be skillful players, a group of voluntary coaches devote part of their weekends to meet this goal.



HBC's coaches are very passionate badminton players who want to spread the sport and contribute to the badminton community in Houston. Even though we are volunteers, the club has carefully selected the coaches, as we have gone through the USAB Coaching Certification and passed Levels 1 and 2 to become more competitive coaches. As part of this certification, the USAB completes a background check on each of the certified coaches. Additionally, the coaches are certified in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), automatic external defibrillator (AED) and First Aid. The coaches' group is composed of badminton aficionados, club players and ex-national players. Independently of the coach's level, each has one main goal; to develop the youth physically and mentally to be able to strive not only on the court, but also as a citizen.

*HBC run a YOUTH enhancement program to give the chance for all JUNIORS to play and improve their game. Four courts (courts 2,3,6,and 7) are reserved specifically for JUNIORS, while the rest are accessible for adults to use. When there are not enough juniors, adult are welcome to play on any court not being used by the juniors. When there are juniors approaching the court, please stop your game promptly and allow the juniors to use the court.
