Sport Foundation set for PE takeover as part of Racket Pack National Tour

Bristol Sport Foundation, in partnership with Badminton England, will be taking over PE lessons at two Bristol primary schools on Friday, October 6th as part of the Racket Pack National Tour.

To celebrate the launch of The Racket Pack, Badminton England are taking Wise, Flo, Tink and Smash out on tour. New for 2017, the awesome foursome who form the Racket Pack, will become familiar names over the coming months as Badminton England embarks on a mission to revolutionise the delivery of badminton to primary school aged children. 

With characters they can relate to, awards to progress through, and on court session plans to make court time fun and engaging, the Racket Pack has been developed with little people at its heart from start to finish.

Community development coach, Claire Buckingham, said: “The children have relished the opportunity to play badminton in their Forever Sport PE lessons, for many of them it is their first experience of the sport.

“Racket Pack's primary school focused lesson plans and tailored equipment have made the lessons fun, engaging and inclusive.”

Bristol is one of four cities chosen to showcase The Racket Pack as part of the Tour, with school engaging in the Forever Sport programme chosen to host sessions.

Forever Sport harnesses the combined expertise and resources within the Bristol Sport stable of sports to provide a unique and comprehensive primary school physical education and sports coaching programme.
