In Saint-Christophe-du-Bois, badminton is on the rise and has found its audience. The club currently has 49 members, who use the gym on Mondays and Thursdays, from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. The flip side is that land and slots are lacking.
With five games available, allowing twenty players to play at the same time, the offer remains insufficient. “Many members therefore cannot practice peacefully. And, on the time slot side, we no longer have the possibility of adding any. All are taken.” remarks Deputy Yannick Ruault.
The alarm bell was sounded in December by association officials and heard by the municipality: “In order to allow a greater number of members to benefit, at the same time, from the time slots reserved for them, we have decided to lay out four new courses. »
These will be available in the gym very soon: “We plan to carry them out during the February holiday period. » Thirty-six players can then play simultaneously.
