BADMINTON is under way again – and people are being invited to have a go.
As the Huddersfield and District League get ready for their first fixtures next week, Huddersfield Eagles Junior Badminton Club are hosting an open day at Newsome High Sports College on Sunday (10.00-4.00).
The aim is to promote opportunities for adults and juniors to play badminton throughout Kirklees and Calderdale.
People go into sports centres and book courts, but they may not know that there are opportunities for coaching, to join local clubs and maybe even play league matches.
“Badminton is not only enjoyable, but it gets you fit, improves your cardio-vascular endurance and muscular flexibility as well as relieving stress and burning calories,” said League publicity secretary Mike Hall.
“So whether you are an adult or a junior, someone who has played before or you just want to learn to play or to keep fit, why not come along and see what opportunities there are for you.”
There will be various activities including mini coaching sessions starting at 10.00, 11.45 and 1.30, demonstration games and opportunities to just have a go at hitting the shuttle.
Huddersfield Eagles provide Junior Coaching on a Sunday morning at Newsome High Sports College. Currently they coach beginners, intermediates and advanced players with the Eagles’ objective to lead players into the Huddersfield League and possibly County Level Coaching, with the support of the League funding certain activities.
