No Strings Attached
Local Freedom Leisure sites are now offering pay & play badminton sessions that guarantee you a partner to play with each and every time
Badminton is a fun sport that anyone can play, and is also a great way to keep fit and healthy. Getting back into your fitness routine after the Christmas holidays can be a challenge, so taking up a new sport can be just what is needed for you to kick start your New Year health drive! Competitive sports are great at providing motivation, so two Freedom Leisure centres in Brighton & Hove are offering a weekly badminton session that guarantees you a partner to play with!
King Alfred Leisure Centre and Moulsecoomb Community Leisure Centre are both running the No Strings Badminton pay & play sessions every week. All the essential equipment is supplied or available for hire, as well as there being a guaranteed partner to play with who’ll have some useful hints and tips if you want them. This is not organised coaching, just a fun and social environment for you to enjoy yourselves in and work up a sweat. There are also no joining fees or commitments, you can just turn up and be sure of a game!
Playing badminton will help you tone your upper body, lower body and core. It’s a fantastic cardiovascular workout and can also help improve balance, agility and explosive speed. On top of the physical benefits, badminton is a real mental challenge – tactical awareness and technique are essential if you want to win.
Players of all abilities are welcome, so whether you’re a dab hand but need some new competition or simply fancy trying out a new and exciting sport, head down to King Alfred or Moulsecoomb Community leisure centres and get involved.
‘Everyone loves the pay & play approach,’ says Richard Bagwell, Group Sports Development Manager at Freedom Leisure. ‘The sessions are fun and everyone has a good laugh – it has become a real social event for some of our regulars. Come and join us to knock a shuttle around one evening – we guarantee you a good game!’
