Our endeavor to transform the junior badminton players of our country into champions, gave birth to Junior Badminton Championship (JBC) which was launched in the year 2015. Since the launch we have conducted six seasons of the championship. This action-packed tournament supports our dream of promoting this popular sport amongst the 7-17- year-old players. JBC has provided a wonderful platform for the young and aspiring talent, to hone their skills and become leading badminton stars of tomorrow. This pioneering initiative has earned the full-fledged support of badminton fraternity in India.
From a small start in 2015 in just 4 cities, JBC has come a long way, the last season of JBC was held in 12 cities with participants of more than 8000+ children. JBC as a tournament has undoubtedly become one of the biggest annual national open-platforms for young badminton enthusiasts.
