All England Badminton

Race Leys were very fortunate to be invited by the Jon Froggett Badminton Fund along with Park Lane and other selected schools to visit the Yonex All England Badminton Championships at Arena Birmingham on Wednesday 14th March. The world’s oldest and most prestigious Badminton tournament see’s the top players from all over the globe compete over 6 days and it was a brilliant experience to see them playing live. We also had the opportunity to take part in some skill challenges, have photos and our faces painted and saw racquets being strung! We then took time to write and draw pictures about our day and all we learnt. This trip, along with their co-curricular club on Monday’s will support the development of the children’s Badminton skills and give them an insight into staging a major sporting event. They all represented the school wonderfully.
