Black Arrows Badminton Club was formed in 1984 and after many years of successful competitions and a tremendous history of achievement, club founder, Henry Gaspard now places a large emphasis on coaching and providing the young people of Hackney and the surrounding boroughs, an opportunity to participate in the sport of Badminton.
The aim of Black Arrows is to put fun into learning the sport and caters for all playing standards, whether a beginner or of county standard. Black Arrows will certainly have something for you.
Henry has been coaching for over twenty five years and continues to do so in a number of venues across London. He has now developed his own coaching team in order to help promote and develop the sport and says that this will help to “further increase the number of young people participating in the sport and attending our sessions”. “Sport itself is a great way of crossing barriers regardless of colour, gender or religion, and I have found, from my own experiences, sport brings people together”.Henry T. Gaspard
