Lifetime Leisure Activities
April 9, 2014
At the beginning of this badminton lesson I did not know much about the rules and I had terrible form. Even after the first class I began to learn the rules and my level of play was much higher. Towards the end of the badminton less I have become very confident in my playing ability.
Philosophy of Play:
Each day we had a list of things to do, such as 30 slams, and we recorded the number of successful attempts. With everyday progress was made and overall skill increased. After practicing each move we played against one another to put our practice to use.
