Welcome back to School!

Things you need--and need to know--in order to play badminton:
A badminton racquet: An important part of learning to play badminton is developing good hand-eye coordination. This will happen with practice, as you become more familiar with using a racquet. Having your own racquet will help with this process, and will give you the option of practising outside of practice time. A racquet for beginners typically costs between $20-30. Check with your parents and siblings who may have one that you can use. If you do not have a racquet for tomorrow's practice, don't worry; there will be some available for you to use.
Protective eyewear is recommended
Indoor footwear: A pair of sneakers that will only be worn in the gym during practice time.
Sport clothes: You will be doing a lot of stretching, running, starting, stopping and turning (and sweating) as you warm up and play badminton; choose comfortable sport clothes— that means no jeans and no parts of your school uniform.
A water bottle is recommended
