    I would like to know some elite badminton clubs for juniors in Denmark, I don't really care what area, I just want to know of some clubs for ages 8-12+

    Thanks a lot,

    Alex W

    You want to sent schoolkids over to Denmark?? Elite clubs for 8-12 y.o. :D

    Just happened to see the other post and I really don't think that's what they mean with "young players". Especially since the season runs parallel to the school year ...
    On the other hand if you're looking for ideas ... here is a list of clubs that won the "Year's Best Youth Club title":

    1998 Esbjerg-Sæding-Guldager Badminton-klub (ESG)
    1999 Horn-Fårvang I.F., Badmintonafdelingen
    2000 Ringsted I.F., Badmintonafdelingen
    2001 Gug Badmintonklub
    2002 Greve Strands Badmintonklub
    2003 Grindsted Badmintonklub
    2004 Herlev
    2005 ASG TIF Bornholm
    2006 Amager Badminton Club
    2007 Middelfart Badmintonklub
    2008 Holbæk Badmintonklub
    2009 Kolding Badmintonklub
    2010 Stubbekøbing Badmintonklub
    2011 Slagelse Badminton Klub

    Also checking out Danish Junior Cup results might give you an idea. And as you might know the system is quite different from North-America in Europe ('no' schools league system but club system) so in principal they would be developing players for the club's senior team hence most teams in their top league would also have their own youth setup, just to paint a global picture (surely others will know the different nuances, xpert something username here is one that comes to mind). Ofcourse that doesn't stop them from contracting the best players from elsewhere to make a title run or simply survive on that level when their budget allows ...
    Aarhus and Odense should be thrown in the mix I suppose and do check out the Danish league tables from last and previous seasons (since the current one has yet to start).

    Yes what else would it mean? Usually a (big) club covers all/most age ranges ...

    Axelsen is from Odense for which he still plays in the league ... (OBK - Odense Badminton Klub). "Ungdom" means something like Youth, should be usefull when searching/browsing ;) ...

    These are three clubs that are participating in a pilot-project for a new approach/concept in youth badminton developed by the danish federation called BATK (Badminton Age-related Trainings Concept):
    Esbjerg Sædding Guldager Badmintonklub (ESG)
    Odense Badminton Klub (OBK)

    Solrød Strand Badmintonklub

    Really for youth sports in general, ATK, in association with the national sports organisation and from there on to a more sport specific implementation for various sports and in this case badminton: BATK
