Introduction to badminton course

Sport Aston will be working in conjunction with the Aston ‘Wellbeing Team’ to offer a coached introduction to badminton course.

Every Tuesday from 12 - 1pm a fully qualified badminton coach will take participants through a series of different badminton techniques in order to teach the basic skills required, to improve the standard of ability and to give participants the confidence to carry on playing after the course finishes. We plan to start the course at the end of May or early June.

The course is ideal for people who are beginners and/or 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.

We are scheduling the course initially for five weeks, with the aim of extending the course for another five weeks subject to participants approval.

Badminton is a really fun sport to play and gives you a fantastic workout. It is also a very social sport and teams can be easily mixed male and female. 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 will cost just £5 in total - £1 for each weeks training which is fantastic value for a coached badminton session.

Places on this course are limited so please contact Simon Foster at s.j.foster1@aston.ac.uk or ext 4630 if you would like to reserve your place on this fantastic, fun course.
