Shuttle Camp

20 players in total took part in the Shuttle / 5x60 two day Summer Camp, which was held at Sport Wales National Centre on 13th & 14th August 2014. The players were put through their paces by 5 coaches (Nic Strange, Carissa Turner, Tony Young, Dave Colmer and Annette O’Neill).

The main emphasis of the camp was to provide these players with the basic fundamental skills required to become better badminton players. Basic shot techniques were taught, along with some footwork drills and simple routines. The camp was thoroughly enjoyed by all and it was great to see so many young and enthusiastic badminton players taking to the court.

The picture above shows the 14 of the 20 players picking up their certificates on day 2.

A special thank you must go to our volunteer coaches Dave Colmer, Tony Young and Annette O’Neill for taking time out of their week to come along and work with our young players.
