Hawick Badminton Festival - 2012

As part of the Vision 2014 project for the Year of Sport 2012, Active Schools Hawick and Hawick Junior Badminton Club offered every primary seven pupil in the Hawick and District area the opportunity to try badminton at the first Hawick Junior Badminton Club Festival on Friday, November 2, when children were introduced to the sport, had some fun and tried out some games. The youngsters also sampled five different badminton skill stations such as 'Fitness Challenge', 'Target Practice' and 'Beat the Pro', and took in an exhibition match featuring some of the Borders' best junior and adult players. Primary seven pupils from seven local schools were represented with one session in the morning and a second in the afternoon.

Local badminton coaches Colin Blaikie and Harry Turnbull would like to thank Scott Renwick, the high school's head of PE, for the use of the main games hall; Paul Scott, the active schools coordinator, for his help organising the event; the sports leaders from the high school; badminton players and coaches from the Borders Badminton Group, and finally all the teachers who helped on the day to make the festival such a great experience for the youngsters.
