Badminton is a game requiring technique, confidence, energy, perseverance, concentration and more. In fact Indian actor and badminton enthusiast Aamir Khan once said: “Badminton is like ballet dancing. It requires a lot of control, strength, mind play and measured movement.”
The Year 11 and 12 Physical Education students have taken to badminton in a big way, “They’re an energetic class and they’re really into the game,” their teacher Andre said, “Some good skills are developing and we see some really competitive games.”
North Lake News caught them in action in the gym recently and saw some high leaps, big smashes, subtle touches and got some action shots.
Badminton is not just for Phys Ed students – anyone is welcome to try on Mondays at recess in the gym.
