The region’s newest sporting organisation, Bundaberg Badminton Club, is encouraging locals to get behind the game at an upcoming open day to be held at Bundaberg Christian College.
Whether you have picked up a racquet before or not, the Badminton Open Day will teach you new skills before games commence as part of the event
The open day will be held on Saturday 3 December with all equipment supplied by the Bundaberg Badminton Club.
A sausage sizzle will also be available for a gold coin donation.
Member Cameron Nisbet said the club was looking forward to welcoming people of all ages, abilities and skillsets.
“Badminton is a great way to exercise, meet new friends, and a relaxed way to promote inclusion and diversity within the Bundaberg community,” Cameron said.
“Bundaberg Badminton Club is an incredibly diverse club, with members from all walks of life and from all over the world, whether that be lifetime-locals, migrants, or those here temporarily for work.
“There’s currently over 30 members, all ranging in ages and abilities from beginners to experienced players.”
Cameron said there were many benefits to both joining the club and playing badminton.
“Playing a sport is one of the best ways to make new friends,” he said.
“Badminton is a great way to keep your mind sharp and increase your hand-eye coordination in a fun and social way, while playing a safe, non-contact sport.”
The club meet every Wednesday and Thursday from 6 pm until 8 pm at Bundaberg Christian College for just $10 a night.
