The newly revived sport of badminton is enjoying a strong following with around 60 people gathering at Princess Anne Hall for the weekly hit out.
Monday evenings have been established as badminton night however due to the Princess Anne Hall at Avatea being double booked on Monday – this week the games were held on Tuesday.
Despite the last minute change – a decent crowd descended on the hall for a great sweat out on the badminton courts.
Those who have yet to experience the fun of badminton are encouraged to join the regulars at the Princess Anne Hall at 6pm next Monday when a mini tournament will begin for those who’ve become keen on the sport.
This mini tournament will give newcomers a good idea of the rules of the game although fun is the main aim of badminton.
