Souris set to host badminton clinic

For the last decade, Denny Quigley has tried to get Manitoba Badminton Association summer camps in Westman and he finally accomplished that goal this year.

Quigley, Manitoba’s top women’s player Kathryne Desautels and fourth-ranked Misilyna Wu will put on a camp in Souris from Aug. 25-29. It’s for kids between 10 and 18 years old and Quigley, who coached badminton at Souris’s school for many years before retiring last year, believes it will greatly improve the skills of anyone who attends.

“You don’t realize the benefits of playing all day, every day and then against competition that’s just a little bit better than you. It pushes you every day,” he said. “I’ll have three instructors and other contacts who will stand on the end of the court correcting you.

“It amazes you how much better you’ll get during the week and I planned it so it’s a week before school so hopefully they can go back in September and keep hitting birds and not lose what they start. Hopefully they can carry it through and the improvement is amazing and what they’ll get out of it.”

The camp is open to 18 people and costs $140. The focus will be on skill development in the mornings and modified and relay games in the afternoon.

Another camp will be held in Minnedosa from July 21-25.
