Badminton Station takes place in the main hall of the School’s Sports Centre, which houses five courts. There are typically around 30 pupils involved on each afternoon, mostly playing doubles and with an emphasis on teamwork. The Station is for pupils of all standards, from beginner to expert, all fully involved and on court for most of the session.
The Station aims to teach beginners the basics of the game and to foster enthusiasm, with plenty of opportunity for improvement through friendly challenge. Shuttlecocks and rackets are provided, although pupils are welcome to bring their own if they wish. Informal instruction is available from the experienced teachers supervising, as well as from more experienced players who enjoy the keen competitive spirit of inter-school matches to extend their level of play. There is also a House badminton competition.
