Badminton season getting underway

The new season for the Estevan Badminton Club is just around the corner.
“It’s a great form of exercise for pretty much everybody,” said club member David Gallaway, whose club’s season gets going Oct. 10 at the Spruce Ridge School gymnasium.
Ranging in age from school students to quite older, and from competitive players to the newest to the sport, Gallaway said everyone is welcome to attend.
“It’s a good way to come out and meet some people and have some fun,” he said.
Play will start at 7 p.m. and will be ongoing most Wednesdays and Sundays throughout the winter. Sunday’s badminton is scheduled to be at the Estevan Comprehensive School gym.
“Some people come out, and we do have some competitive people that come out and have competitive games and then we have beginning players that come out,” Gallaway said. “We do offer some assistance in coaching to help people learn the game if they need to learn the rules. But if they just want to come out and hit the bird around with their friends, they’re welcome to do that.”
Nets and shuttles are provided and racquets are also available if needed. Indoor running shoes are all that are required.
People can pay for either a seasonal membership or a drop-in fee.
Anyone interested can call Gallaway at 306-461-4322.
