“We have badminton, Rock Up Netball, junior netball and soccer at Camperdown stadium,” Ms Hinds said.

“Basketball, squash, badminton and netball are running at Timboon stadium.

Ms Hinds said it had been a tough year for some clubs.

“I know the Badminton Association in Camperdown is giving it another go after being in hiatus for the last two years.

“They are looking at starting a competition in early May,” she said.

Camperdown Badminton Association’s Lyn McLean said the club had a ‘Come and Try’ night on Monday and will hold another session at 7 pm, Monday 3 May at Camperdown stadium.

“We’ve had a couple of people ask, so we have decided to give it a try,” Mrs McLean said.

Mrs McLean said they were still short a few players to start a weekly competition.

“A few turned up to the first Come and Try session which was great, but we need some more to be able to start a competition,” she said.

Mrs McLean, who has played badminton for more than 60 years, said it offers a great alternative to mainstream sports.

“It’s a low-impact, positive game that requires a bit of skill. It’s indoors, great exercise and I like the friendship.

“Over the years we’ve had players that have never played before, so anyone wanting to give badminton a go in Camperdown is most welcome.
