Due to the growing enthusiasm shown by pupils at the school’s badminton club, we recently arranged for a qualified badminton coach to visit our sports hall and provide 5 weeks of specialist coaching.
John Colley, a local coach with 15 years experience, has been providing a 90 minute session every week since the start of term. Pupils have been receiving specialist advice and training in the tactics and skills of the game. John commented recently that he has been “impressed with the enthusiasm and progress shown by all the pupils.”
A sure sign that it has been a great success, is the fact that at the end of every session, the pupils always have to be persuaded to leave the courts – sometimes 30 minutes after John’s allotted time has finished!”
