Double Olympian Visit

On Wednesday 9th October The PE Department were extremely lucky and welcomed the renowned Badminton player Julie Bradbury for the day.

Year 7 Girls Year 9

 

Julie is a double Olympian who represented Great Britain in both Barcelona and Atlanta. Julie was ranked World Number 1 in her field and is currently World Seniors Champion. Julie was able to meet with students from the lower school and provide a masterclass to help improve their Badminton technique and competitive performance.

The students that were involved were extremely excited about participating in the masterclass and found it extremely useful - especially for those students who are studying PE GCSE. The participation levels across the Badminton clubs in the last two weeks has increased rapidly and if anyone would like to begin playing for a club outside of school - please see Mrs Pleasance for a leaflet.
