3 reasons to try Badminton:

  • It’s a great way to socialise whilst also getting fitter, and, as it’s an indoor sport, it means you can play it all year round!
  • It is the fastest racket sport there is so it’s a great way to challenge yourself
  • Tests all types of fitness, such as cardio, agility, reactions, speed and strength so it’s a great all-round workout to burn plenty of calories and get sweaty!
