Badminton England Masterclass Sessions

Today, Prior Park College students were able to enjoy badminton coaching sessions from GB and England badminton player, Julie Bradbury. Julie is a double Olympian (Barcelona and Atlanta), a Commonwealth Games Gold medal winner in the Mixed Doubles and was ranked No. 1 at the highest point in her playing career. So, Prior Park College was honoured to welcome Julie and to be able to benefit from her expertise.

Our L5 GCSE PE students worked on increasingly complex drills to improve their serves, overhead clears and smashes, whilst our Baines and Brownlow students worked on rallying and movement about the court during a lunchtime session. 

Great fun and progress was made by all students and Julie was an inspiration when she shared her Gold Medal with students at the end of each session.
