Badminton Star Hosts Master Class

Following a sensational season, Higham Lane School's badminton players have been rewarded with a visit from a current England international.

Rhys Walker, a former Higham Lane student, returned to his old school to host a master class for the Under-14 and Under-16 boys and girls who won all four District league titles and associated tournaments without losing a game - winning 28 and drawing two.

Organised by the England Badminton Association, Rhys passed on several top tips during his afternoon coaching session before joining the players on court for a number of games.

For further details on Rhys' visit, and more photographs, see the next edition of HLS Express.
