Safari Badminton Adult Badminton Practice
Starting May 2017

Is one of your personal goals to improve your badminton game?
Do you enjoy being on court with other like-minded players?
Do you think structured practice would improve your game?
Would you like to practice specific badminton skills?

Shadow exercises (no shuttle) to reinforce correct movements and footwork
Multi shuttle practice and predictable rallies to develop hitting and moving consistency
Overload practices to improve specific aspects, e.g. "scrambling" for shuttles to improve reactions
Tactical practices to focus on specific game scenarios, e.g. rotation; first 4 shots; maintain attack
Conditioned games to generate realistic opportunities to focus on specific skills and tactics
Normal game-play (mostly level and mixed doubles)
Routines which players have learned or seen elsewhere and would like the opportunity to practice with other like-minded players

Sessions will have a strong emphasis on active court time and improvement through self-motivation.

Players of all abilities ranging from confident social players up to county standard are welcome.

Facilitated by a qualified Level 2 coach.

10 per person per session
