Sign up for a lunchtime badminton taster course

Due to the high demand for the current badminton taster course, Sport Aston is continuing to work with Wellbeing Team to offer a coached 5 week ‘introduction to badminton’ course. This is part of the Wellbeing Team's ‘Active Aston’ campaign to get staff active and to encourage you to take a lunch break!

Every Tuesday between 1 - 2pm a fully qualified badminton coach will take participants through a series of different badminton techniques, teaching the basic skills, improving the standard of ability and giving participants the confidence to carry on playing when the course finishes. The course will start on either Tuesday 13 or Tuesday 20 July depending on the coach and the participants' availability. A total of 20 places are available on a first come basis.

This course is ideal for beginners or those who have not played Badminton for a number of years but would like to give it a go. The course is not really suitable for participants who are at an intermediate or advanced level.

Badminton is a really fun sport to play and gives you a fantastic workout. It is also a very social sport. This course would not only help you to get fit and have fun but you will make new friends from other departments too! Badminton rackets will be provided so you don’t need any specialist equipment – just your sports kit.

The course costs just £5 – the equivalent of £1 for each week of training which is fantastic value for a coached badminton session.

Places are limited so please contact Simon Foster on ext 4630 to reserve your place.
