Badminton Moray camps provide Easter fun for all levels

Badminton players of all ages from across Moray had a chance to work on their skills across the holidays thanks to two days of Easter camps held in the area.

 

Forres House Community Centre played host as juniors as well as intermediate and performance players took to the court, with more than 50 showcasing their badminton capabilities during the break.

 

Nearly 30 in the junior session alone took part, with performance squad members and Young Leaders combining to help provide hands-on and engaging coaching for all who took part.

 

Forehand to backhand grip change, core conditioning, fitness, competitive game play, fun and enjoyment were just some of the items on the agenda for the talented and keen players. Each camp provided specific elements of technique to focus on as well as the fun and enjoyment of playing matches.

 

Indeed, in just a few hours both technique and confidence grew in abundance across the camp – with the Young Leaders getting their own opportunity to show their abilities both on and off the court to help with their own futures.

 

But that wasn’t all as the intermediate and performance group got their chance on court, with a mixture of technique work and competition mixed into the session.


Even lead coach Angela Bell got in among the action on a day featuring strong camaraderie and some absorbing and close matches – with the fun had leaving scores almost forgotten by the end!


With the competition element being met with unanimous approval, Badminton Moray will be looking to incorporate it into future camps whenever possible.
