Primary Schools urged to beat the Big Hit deadline

TIME IS running out for affiliated schools to book places on BADMINTONscotland’s premier Big Hit Festival of the year.

The demand for places on the Festival from 21-25 August during the TOTAL BWF World Championships 2017 in August is proving to be exceptionally high.

With just 160 days to go to the start of the World Championships the priority deadline for affiliated schools to register is only a week away.

From next Monday (March 20) the major Festival in the BADMINTONscotland’s World Championship legacy programme will be opened to all primary schools.

The Festivals run from August 21-25 and offer the chance for primary school children to try badminton as well as seeing the world’s best players like Lee Chong Wei, Lin Dan and Carolina Marin performing in Glasgow’s Emirates Arena.

The Shuttle Time Big Hit Festivals are part of BADMINTONscotland’s Legacy Programme aimed at introducing 30,000 schoolchildren to the sport.
