We strongly recommend that new or beginner players take advantage of this programme. Have-A-Bash will equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to feel confident when you first step on to the courts.
Melbourne Smashers Badminton Club, in partnership with Badminton Victoria, is offering a free training programme for new and returning players. The programme consists of four two-hour long sessions. All aspects of the game are covered, and everything is free - coaching, shuttles and racquets are all provided. The programme is being run at Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre in Albert Park, easily reachable by public transport and with plenty of parking.
After the training you will have the opportunity to meet and play badminton with the Melbourne Smashers, Melbourne’s friendly badminton club for LGBTQI players and their friends.
