Our “essentials” course has been designed by Badminton England to teach you all the basics of badminton, and allows you to learn in a fun, relaxed environment. It is an ideal way to make progress in the sport for those who have always wanted to improve beyond “beginner” or “social/family” level badminton. The course includes:
- The correct ways of holding a racquet
- The skills of posture and movement
- How to serve properly and different ways of serving
- How to score games of singles and doubles
- The techniques for producing different shots/strokes
- An understanding of games tactics
Courses are delivered by our qualified, insured and experienced Level 2 coach Tony Poole over a period of eight weeks. You can of course use your own racquet, although equipment will be provided. You can also purchase a racquet through Tony at a greatly discounted price.
During the long period of pandemic restrictions, it has not been possible to run this course and, although most restrictions are now lifted allowing coaching activities to continue again, we are left with an environment of reduced court availability plus venues’ own safety rules to navigate. The possibility of staging a course is an ongoing project and as soon as circumstances allow we intend to run Essentials badminton again.
