Are your children interested in playing badminton?

Badminton isn’t one of the most common sports for children, but it can be a great way to get kids active, even if none of the other, more common, sports has caught their interest. These are some of the benefits of badminton for kids:

Badminton for kids is great exercise
Children need a lot of exercise to stay fit, so any activities that get them moving are great for their health. Badminton can be a particularly good sport as it is interesting, fun and fast-paced. Players get to rush around the court, chasing the shuttlecock, and since badminton is usually played individually or in doubles, every player gets plenty of exercise, which isn’t always the case in team sports for children.

Badminton can be played in pairs

Although badminton is an individual sport, it is played against a competitor, and it can also be played in pairs. This means that children can learn a lot about teamwork, communication, and working with other people. It also means that you can play too if you want to enjoy some quality time.

Badminton improves hand-eye coordination

Children’s badminton offers a chance to do more than just run around. Watching the shuttlecock flying up and trying to time and angle the hit correctly can help to improve their balance and coordination.

Exercise makes kids happier
Sport isn’t just good for children physically, but also mentally. Exercise can make people happier, and badminton can be particularly enjoyable as it is a sport that keeps players active and thinking throughout the whole match.

Badminton is a gentle sport
Some sports for children can be quite rough, and while this suits some children, others can be put off by contact sports that involve mud, rough play, and the chance of getting hit by a heavy ball. Badminton is a great option for children who want a gentler sport, or for those occasions when parents would prefer them to stay clean while they are getting active.

Badminton doesn’t require much equipment
Badminton is an affordable sport that doesn’t require much equipment. It can be played with just two people, a pair of racquets and a shuttlecock.

So why not come along to our new junior badminton coaching on Thursdays 5.45-7.00pm at Teddington Sports Centre. This is a 4 week course and will continue in our forthcoming January to April programme.

Please contact us on 020 3772 2999 for more information or to book your place.



Children’s ballet coming soon to Teddington

If your children are interested in taking dance lessons, you may want to consider enrolling them in a course in classical ballet. Ballet is a form of dance that relies heavily on physical strength and agility, strong concentration skills, an understanding of music and rhythm and a love of movement. Instruction in ballet can provide numerous benefits for children of all ages regardless of their skill level.

Our ballet classes will develop creativity, expression, coordination and control.

Children’s ballet classes will start in January. Please see below details:
