New badminton group launched for cancer patients in Windsor

A new badminton group has been set up in Windsor aimed at getting cancer patients to get back into sport.

No Strings Badminton was set up for people who were getting back into sport after being unwell and others who want to try are welcome to join in.

There is a coach at each session to introduce beginners to the game.

The programme is supported by Badminton England and Macmillan Cancer Support.

Lifestyle co-ordinator and clinical exercise specialist at the Royal Borough, Sarah Hill, said the sport is particularly good for people recovering from breast cancer as it stretches the arms.

She said: “No Strings is for cancer patients to participate in sports. It is a good chance to get to meet people who are in the same position.

"It is also good for other people who want to get back to health.”

The sessions take place at Windsor Leisure Centre, in Stovell Road, every Thursday from 9.30am and cost £4.

For more information, contact the leisure centre on 01753 778577.
