Racquet Sports Activity Badge
How to earn your badge
You should be aiming to work towards this badge over a period of 6 to 12 months.
- Regularly participate in a racquet sport over a period of time. Demonstrate an improvement in your level of skill.
- Demonstrate your skills to a group of young people and encourage them to try the sport out. You’re not expected to play the role of an instructor and an adult should supervise you all.
- Talk about any safety rules or laws in your chosen sport and how to abide by them.
- Take part in at least two competitions or demonstrations. Talk about your performance with your coach or instructor and ways to improve.
Each young person who participates in the Programme, including badges and awards, should face a similar degree of challenge, and requirements can be adapted according to each young person’s abilities. For more information and practical tips see our guidance on flexibility
