Safari Badminton Practice (Adults) August special: Pay What You Want
The practice sessions for adults have been running since the end of May and are currently taking place in Rainworth at the Joseph Whitaker School and Sneinton at the Nottingham Academy.

To give everyone playing in the Notts league the opportunity to see what the sessions are about first hand, Safari Badminton is running a PWYW (minimum 1, usual price 5 or 10) offer throughout August.

The sessions are aimed at league players who want to sharpen up specific technical skills and tactical knowledge, focus on group work and being very active for the full 2 hours.

This is ideal pre-season training!

For a full breakdown of what sessions involve please visit www.safari-badminton.com/adult-practice.

All sessions are facilitated by a level 2 BE qualified coach.

Sessions run on Wednesdays (Rainworth) and Thursdays (Sneinton) from 8-10 pm.

You can get more information by emailing jim@safari-badminton.com or calling Steve on 07866691494.
