Pre-Season Training: Netball and Badminton
45 girls learn skills from top UK coaches...
On Friday 28 August, before term started, 45 keen girls from Years 7-13 came into school for a day of pre-season badminton and netball training.
The netball sessions were taken by coaches Lauren Massey and Izzy Beighton. Lauren is a Loughborough Lightning and England U21 player and Izzy is a Loughborough University 1st team player and a Loughborough Lightning training partner.
Badminton was taken, once again, by Steve Higgins, who has led all the pre-season sessions for the past three years. Steve was the ex-England junior coach and now teaches PE in Kent whilst also coaching Surrey Smashers, part of the National Badminton League.
The sessions included skills, tactics, fitness and game play. The girls loved the sessions, and are now prepared for the season ahead!
