This Girl Can Badminton at East Riding Leisure

What is it?

With over 23,700 courts nationwide, badminton is England’s most popular racket sport, with almost ½ million people swinging a racket at least once a week.

Badminton’s appeal is all in its simplicity – just keep the shuttle from hitting the floor and keep it inside the court.


This Girl Can Badminton East Riding
Why is it good for me?
  • It’s great aerobic exercise to tone up and help stay fit
  • The tactics make it a good all round work out for your brain as well
  • Your flexibility, balance and reaction speed is enhanced by all the twisting, turning, jumping and stretching
  • Hand to eye co-ordination is tested, as are your reflexes
  • Casual players usually burn around 400 calories in a sociable 60-minute game
  • You can play at your own pace and to your own limits

What equipment do I need?

The better you get, the better your equipment can be, but if you’re only starting:

It’s a court, not a catwalk! Normal sportswear or comfortable leisure clothing with a bit of stretch is usually fine, but generally anything goes.

Some sports centres may require you to wear non-marking soled footwear..  White kit is a thing of the past, so wearing what you are comfortable in and the more colour the better.Most sports centres will hire racquets and charge you a small fee or deposit for shuttles.
