Places to play for Junior's in Denmark
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,

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

Also, does anybody know which one Viktor Axelson trained at? Thanks!

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
