Get fit with badminton

A LEISURE centre in Shirebrook is offering free badminton sessions until the end of January to help local residents keep fit in the New Year.

Kissingate Leisure Centre is running the free No Strings Badminton sessions, which normally cost 2, up to January 26.

A complementary beach towel worth 12 will also be given to anyone attending four or more of the sessions by February 20.

No Strings Badminton is a new initiative being hosted at over 100 venues across England and aims to get 10,000 adults of any age or ability onto badminton courts ahead of the London 2012 Olympics.

The badminton sessions take place every Wednesday between 8pm and 10pm.
