Badminton

Overview

Badminton is played throughout the Autumn and Spring Terms. Pupils choose to play the sport as their chosen activity and receive coaching on Tuesdays during their activity session. Training is undertaken by our Head of Badminton, David Hammond, and all pupils receive the latest training drills and exercises on a weekly basis. Our main team comprises eight U17 players, but there is a lot of potential coming through the younger cohort, for which we have high hopes, and fixtures at U14 and U15 level will be taking place this year.

Each team not only trains during activities on Tuesdays, but also benefits from extra coaching provided after school on the same day.  This is a chance for them to work on their match-play tactics and they have the opportunity to play in competitive games each week.   Fixtures against neighbouring schools normally take place during the week. Among the schools we play are Epsom College, Glyn Technology School, Cranleigh School and Caterham School.
