As we head into our 6th week of the restrictions caused by the coronavirus I wanted to share an update from Badminton Wales.
Following the decision to suspend all Badminton activities on the 16th March 2020, Badminton Wales has continued to take advice and guidance regarding the COVID 19 pandemic and extended the suspension in line with government guidelines, while scenario planning for the future.
Additional badminton events that have been suspended are:
Welsh Vets Masters - 5th April
National Junior League Finals - 3rd May
National Senior League Finals - 9th May
Please continue to check our website and social media platforms for all of the latest information as well as articles, photos and videos from our Team and Badminton Family – the weekly challenges are proving a great success and we would love to see more challenges been thrown into the mix from our members.
As restrictions extend it is vital that we continue to look after our physical and mental well-being to ensure our body and mind stay healthy and active. A great article from Badminton England on looking after your mental health during lockdown: https://www.badmintonengland.co.uk/news/looking-after-your-mental-health-during-lockdown/
Sport Wales specialist ‘Play to Learn’ and ‘Dragon Multi-Skills and Sport’ resources, which are used in schools and education settings across Wales, have been made available for free online during the Coronavirus lockdown. With lots of families looking for inspiration to keep children active, the resources form a key part of the #BeActiveWales campaign which Badminton Wales are involved with. The Play to Learn and Dragon Multi-Skills and Sport resources can be found at www.sport.wales, together with more information on physical literacy and the #BeActiveWales campaign.
As ever, thank you for your support and please keep in touch with your questions or concerns [email protected] and as ever we encourage you to please remain up to date with the latest health advice from Public Health Wales.
