Badminton goes to Graaff-Reinet

On Saturday morning, 19th June, badminton came to Graaff-Reinet when EP Badminton hosted a Shuttle Time workshop at the Botanics Sports Club.

Shuttle Time is the BWF schools programme that aims to support the teaching of enjoyable, safe and inclusive badminton activities to children.

The workshop was presented by the Eastern Province Badminton Association Head Coach, Ruben Snyman, serving as a fun introduction to badminton, focussed on teaching basic badminton skills using a number of fun games and drills that encourages continued participation in badminton and daily physical activity.

Those who attended were taught the basic rules, grips, correct footwork, serves, net shots, overhead clears and drops. 

The clinic was engaging and fun and Union Preparatory School thanks EP Badminton and Mr Andries Burger of the Botanics Badminton Club for presenting the learners with this opportunity.
