Ramdhani lobbies for Shuttle Time at BWF’s AGM
The Guyana Badminton Association (GBA) President Gokarn Ramdhani attended the Badminton World Federation (BWF) AGM in Gold Coast, Australia, on May 19-21 and was able to lobby for the Shuttle Time programme to be held in Guyana.
In 2012 BWF launched Shuttle Time to the world. It is a schools badminton programme supporting the principle that children should lead a healthy and active life, both in and out of school. BWF’s goal is to make badminton one of the world’s most popular and accessible school sports.
Shuttle Time offers school teachers access to free resources, training and equipment, which support the teaching of enjoyable, safe and inclusive badminton activities to children aged five to 15.
Shuttle Time lessons are designed to provide children with a positive image of badminton through many opportunities to have fun, engage with others and experience success. Shuttle Time is currently being implemented in 101 countries in partnership with BWF’s Continental Confederations and Member Associations.
The GBA plans to implement this programmed in June/July 2017 and arrangements are ongoing to get the International coaches and personnel ready.
