Week ONE of the Summer Camp, at the University of Birmingham’s NEW sport and fitness centre, proved to be a SMASH HIT for the West Midlands Performance Centre.
This annual event’s first week, saw in excess of 40 badminton players, aged from as young as three years old to a gentleman in his thirties, participate in the badminton Summer Camp. The first week was run over four days and not only included routines, covering the different shots, lift, drop, net etc…. it covered singles and doubles rotation, technical advice to improve individual techniques, but I think for most the footwork to music was the biggest smash hit with all the players. Footwork to music was held in the impressive dance studio at the Sport and Fitness Centre, even for all passers by to see from Edgbaston Park Road. The two hour session was lead by Julia Mann (England and GB coach) who demonstrated each routine for the players to follow and practice.
There are still two weeks left of the Summer Camp w/c 14th and w/c 21st. Now with only limited places left. If you are quick booking forms can be found HERE.
After week one of the West Midlands Performance Centre’s Summer Camp, many parents verbally feed back positive comments and their ‘thank you’s. But one mom popped this email over to us.
“I can not even begin to explain just how enthused, motivated & inspired Jake has been after Monday & Wednesday camps. He spent over an hour last night reliving the 2 days to me, demonstrating what he had learnt, and relaying conversations he’d had with others/new friendships forged and watching others play……….. it was absolutely fantastic!!! So, a massive thank you, if this is what you set out to accomplish then you’ve achieved it tenfold!!!!!”
Went you get feedback and ‘thank you’s like this it is so very satisfying and makes all the hard work that goes into preparing and planning these event seem so worthwhile.
