The latest Active Northumberland badminton tournaments, held at Ponteland Leisure Centre , were hugely successful events, attracting 26 players from over the region, with an age range of 13 to 60!
As well as some familiar faces taking part, it was really pleasing to see some new players too!
Philip Hall who organised the event said:
“ It was all very friendly yet competitive and I was really impressed with the standard of play. There were plenty of very close, exciting matches, and it was great to see players of all ages on the same court enjoying their games.”
Badminton is easy to learn and a great sport for all ages and abilities, from primary school age children up to OAPs! In addition to strengthening core, back and arm muscles and promoting all round fitness, it is a great way to meet people and make new friends.
