Term 4 Shuttle Time Intermediate Schools Competition

Term 4 Shuttle Time Intermediate Schools Competition

This competition is another chance for any students in years 7 & 8 from all schools to have fun while playing badminton and representing their school during competition! The competition is open to all abilities from beginners to u13 reps. We encourage everyone to take part! We provide racquets to borrow and shuttles, so all you have to do is turn up within indoor sports shoes. Badminton encourages speed, agility, hand-eye coordination, social skills and sportsmanship.
