HAPPY CHILDREN LEARNING SKILLS WITH A SMILE ON THEIR FACE
As parents, happy children having fun as they develop is all that matters.
That is absolutely what we shoot for with The Racket Pack (and is something we are happy to put the trusted Badminton England name to).
Designed purely for little smashers with energy to burn, The Racket Pack is a skills based initiative that lets children enjoy a quality first experience of badminton that sets them out on a lifelong love of getting active.
Sparking active imaginations to try something new; our fun, friendly sessions also play a key role in developing fitness, stamina, teamwork, co-ordination and confidence skills.
Everything from the session plans and teacher resources through to the inspirational award scheme that rewards enthusiasm as much as ability, has been tailored to let little ones thrive at Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 level.
For those little smashers who show a glimmer of talent.
Leaders of The Racket Pack sessions are always on the look out for children that show a natural flair for playing badminton who will be encouraged to join a local club to develop that talent further. We make a point of asking schools to link with a local club to offer an easy route into playing club badminton for the pupils if they want to continue. You can Find a local club here.
Badminton England offer lots of ways to improve your game and progress, including a hugely popular Junior Competition circuit from Under 11 level.
There is also a performance pathway in place to identify players who could have the potential to play nationally in the future.
