Search is on for new talent
Open night to attract next generation
Loch Lomond Badminton Club are hoping to get more people involved in the sport.
Players young and old are welcome to the club for their information evening next week to encourage more people to take up the sport.
Coaches will be at the event at the Vale of Leven Academy on Tuesday to answer any questions about the club and a junior session will also be held, allowing children to try the sport for free.
The junior section has plenty of space this season for any children interested in playing.
There is coaching available at the club for junior and adult players with the focus on helping players progress their skills and knowledge of the game.
The club was formed in 2009 with the aim of getting more people involved in sport and providing coaching to help children, young people and adults progress their skills.
Alan Crawford, who coaches at the club, said: “Badminton is an excellent sport for all ages and ability levels.
“In terms of coaching the focus has always been on the junior section with the aim of developing the sport from the grassroots level.
“The adult section has always been more about social badminton with mainly games being played throughout the evening.
“However, coaching is available for those that would like to receive some advice.
“This year we are also looking to introduce some fitness activity into the adult section for those that would like to work on key badminton movements.
“The adult section also provides an excellent pathway for the older children to progress from the junior section as they develop as players.
“We are unfortunately the only club in West Dunbartonshire and as a result we are hoping to grow and develop further this year.
“We are interested in hearing from anyone that is interested in playing or coaching badminton.”
The club meets each Tuesday at Vale of Leven Academy. The junior section is delivered from 6pm until 8pm, with the adult section (16 years+) being held from 8pm until10pm.
