Badminton is an excellent way to keep in shape while improving eye/hand coordination and increasing alertness.

It’s fun and a great way to beat stress.

It can increase HDL or good cholesterol by 13% and decrease blood pressure by as much as 11/8 mm Hg, therefore reducing the risk of heart disease.

It is played indoors in dozens of safe sporting venues across Merseyside.

It can promote weight loss as part of an overall healthy eating and exercise regime. Just a 7% weight loss has been proven to be enough to reverse or stop the progression of certain diseases related to obesity like diabetes and hypertension.

It has been found that playing badminton until you get an increase in heart rate or mild breathlessness regularly in middle age lowers the risk of death by about 23% in the subsequent 20 years and improves longevity by at least two years.
