Give sport a try for free

Have your say

NEW players are being invited to try out the badminton courts at a north Derbyshire town’s leisure centre.

Kissingate Leisure Centre, Shirebrook, which is run by Bolsover Council, has signed up to a national Bring a Friend for Free campaign to promote the sport, which will run from today until May 31. The initiative is being run by Badminton England, which promotes the sport.

The centre holds badminton sessions every Wednesday between 8pm and 10pm, where people pay £2 to play as many games as they like.

Vouchers are available from the centre so players can bring up to four friends free of charge.

Players can be entered into a prize draw to win MP3 players and a 42-inch TV.
