All of the sessions are inclusive and will give everyone the opportunity to try the sports.

Two sessions have already been delivered and have been very successful.

Ben Williams, Active Young People Coordinator for the Vale of Glamorgan, commented, 

"The children have really benefited from having the opportunity to play a variety of sports such as badminton.  Having Badminton Wales provide a first class coach and equipment to get the children hooked on the sport has been a great addition to this year’s summer events in the Vale of Glamorgan”.
