Class Description

Get ready to rally! Badminton is a racquet sport that can be played by either two people (singles) or four people (doubles). Unlike other racquet sports, such as tennis or squash, badminton involves hitting a shuttlecock – a cone-shaped projectile that moves differently than a ball - making badminton the ideal sport for those who like to be kept on their toes. In addition to speed and stamina, good motor coordination is a must if you want to be able to master key racquet techniques.

He has continued to play and coach this lifelong sport through his adult life and as a resident of Franklin for the past 24 years. He is excited to see this recent surge of  interest in this exciting Olympic sport.
