Last Saturday's session was mainly devoted to the sport of Badminton and all those that attended participated well and a number showed a high level of skill with some long rallies. As always we started off with a warm up - stretching and jogging - leading in to a game of Tag.
Once we warmed up it was out with the rackets and shuttle cocks and the start of the skills practice. Alan, Ray, Ciara and Ollie worked with all the kids to ensure they were holding the rackets properly and knew how to serve and return to each other. As you can see from the pictures they tried some keepy-uppy to practice their control before pairing up to practice serving to each other and building up rallies.
After a well earned break we took things down a notch or two with a variety of Boccia games. First the kids had to aim their bowls for the blue or red hoops. Next it was on to the big target with closest the bullseye the winner. The final game was the original form of having a white jack ball and the aim for the members was to get their ball as close to it as they can.
