Coaching Sessions

Coaching Sessions

Throughout the year Forrest Badminton Club runs coaching sessions that cater for a variety of abilities. All sessions are supervised by qualified coaches and assistant coaches. The fee for each session is £2 for children and £3 for adults. No other entertainment or coaching could be cheaper, and it is a sport that once learned, can be played for the rest of the pupil's active life.

Sessions are conducted under Badminton England rules and recommendations. Forrest has already become one of the few accredited clubs in the country. All coaches, players and parents must adhere to the Code of Conduct designed to promote safety and learning. If you have any questions or require more information please contact Ray Schofield.
