Wednesday 7 March 2012 | Published in Regional


Badminton fever continues to grow and to accommodate for the growth – two nights a week have been set down for the sport at the Princess Anne Hall.

At a recent meeting of the interim committee, it was decided that an extra night of games be established to cater for regular players who have gone in a month from beginners to competitive players.

Monday night badminton at the Princess Anne Hall is open to everyone of all skill levels.

From 4pm for an hour – a coaching session for beginners will be held to develop the necessary skills to get the most enjoyment out of playing badminton.

From 5pm to 6.30pm a social competition will run for junior players including primary and college students and from 6.30pm all the regular and beginner adult players will take over the four courts set up at the hall in Tereora.

On Thursdays the focus will be on competitive games for those that have mastered the skills of badminton and want to have more of a rigorous workout and test your skills and fitness.

These games will also be held at the Princess Anne Hall and will start from 5pm and run till everyone has sapped their energy on the courts.

On Monday nights the fees are $1 for primary school students and $2 for everyone else and on Thursday the entry fee is $5.

The small fee is to help pay the rental of the Princess Anne Hall.

All you need to play badminton is lots of enthusiasm – so get to the Princess Anne Hall and have a fun workout with badminton.
