International Coaching for Norfolk Junior Badminton

The Norfolk U17 team of 5 boys & 5 girls will be playing in an inter county tournament over 4 days in Nottingham in 2 weeks time. As part of their preparation  a coaching session was run by Commonwealth medalist Jenny Wallwork at Dereham Leisure Centre on Saturday. The players will also receive input from a sports psychologist to help them cope with high pressure matches.
