Yonex Demo Event

Yonex Demo Event

Thu 04 Apr 2019 20:52 Chris Travis

Good news, we will once again be hosting a Yonex Demo Event. This is a great opportunity to try out their entire range of rackets, including those used by all your favourite Yonex sponsored badminton players! Being able to play with all the different rackets will give you an appreciation of the differences (weight, balance, flex, string tension etc) between them so that you can understand the characteristics of your ideal racket.

The event doesn't cost a thing. Just turn up and try out the rackets. Richard Barnett, from BaTsports (a local Yonex Authorised Stockist), will be on hand to provide advice. He's also a ERSA certified stringer, so can help you out if your racket needs a restring. Although there is no obligation to buy anything, he will also be able to take orders for any rackets or other equipment for those who fall instantly in love!

Being able to try rackets out before you buy them is a fantastic, and extremely rare, opportunity that you won't want to miss! So make sure you reserve the date in your calendar and RSVP using the link below.

Date: Sunday 28th April 2019
Time: 2pm - 4pm
Venue: Balcarras Sports Centre, East End Road, Charlton Kings, GL53 8QF

Junior Competitions in March

Sun 03 Mar 2019 22:57 Chris Travis

In addition to our weekly coaching sessions, there are a number of junior competitions taking place in March. All of them provide a great opportunity to play some extra badminton and test your skills out by playing with players from other local clubs. Next to the name of each event, I've listed which age group the event is targeted at. If you are not sure if an event is suitable for you then please do get in touch and we will be able to advise you.

KS2 Meet & Compete (School Years 4 - 6)

Sunday 10th March, 1:45pm - 3:45pm, Balcarras Sports Centre, £5

An opportunity for primary school aged players to experience some fun based badminton skills development activities as well as game play.

Doubles Time Attack (School Years 7 - 9)

Saturday 16th March, 12pm - 2pm, Balcarras Sports Centre, £5

Easter Half Court Singles Tournament (School Years 4 - 11)

Saturday 30th March, 1pm - 5pm, Bournside Sports Centre, £6

There will be 2 rounds of half court singles games. In the first round, players will be placed into groups and play a game against everyone in their group. At the end of each game the winner will be given the opportunity of taking a raffle ticket with a chance of winning a large Easter Egg or taking a fun size sweet. The losing player will then take the option not chosen by the winner.

When round one has been completed players will be re-grouped depending on how they did, and play against everyone in their new group. Winners of each second round group will receive an Easter Egg to celebrate his or her achievement.
