              A BLAST FROM THE PAST !!!!!!!


With the new badminton season starting on Monday 3rd September at the Club’s Long Field Academy base in Melton, Old Grammarians (OGs) are well set to enjoy another successful season.


As always club night for adults will be on Monday nights commencing at 8pm and the major initiative for the forthcoming season will revolve around badminton for juniors in the Melton area. In recent years OGs has successfully held weekly coaching sessions for juniors and intermediates at the Club before the normal club night. Having received significant financial backing from both Badminton England and Leicester-shire & Rutland Sport (L&RS) OGs will be launching an ambitious programme of junior coaching across Melton schools over the winter months.


OGs Chairman Steve Mitchell commenting on the initiative said “ With schools offering a very wide range of activities to students it is hugely important badminton competes and makes access to our game as easy as possible to a new generation of players. With great help from bodies such as Badminton England and L&RS and from Clare Marlow, Schools Sports Development Manager for Melton and Belvoir, we are in the process of putting in place a hugely exciting programme of events ranging from coaching at schools to Badminton Festivals thus ensuring a large number of students in the Melton area have access to what is a great sport, not only from an enjoyment but also health point of view.


We are very fortunate in having a team of three qualified coaches leading this ambitious programme so parents and teachers alike know the students will be well looked after and taught to play the sport properly. To compliment this new initiative OGs will be extending our existing coaching facilities at the club in advance of the normal Monday night club night. From the beginning of October we will be starting junior coaching at 6pm with intermediate coaching commencing at 7pm. In effect what we have created is a seamless transition from raising awareness of our sport in schools through to playing badminton at adult level.”
