St. Raphaela’s has 3 badminton age groups that train every week. The age groups are U14, U16 and U19s. Teams are picked in late September to take part in the Schools League. Often there are several teams entered at each age group.
Badminton is a great team sport that encourages camaraderie and tests individual nerve also.
There are 4 players on each team and 6 games are played in one match. Each player must play a singles match up to 30 points and then a doubles match also. The team with the most games or points (in a tie) wins.
Practice days are Monday, Wednesday and Thursdays
