"I was inspired myself so I am hoping badminton, which is a popular sport in Bridlington, will become even more popular and people who play it now and then or played years ago and gave up or have not played at all."
Would-be players are invited to attend at the sports centre on Thursday evenings.
DRIFFIELD: Money raised from a strawberry tea party has given a £200 boost for funds at a church.
Driffield Salvation Army held the tea party on Saturday, August 18, at the church centre on The Mount, and raised £265.09 for the church funds.
New territorial envoy for the Driffield Salvation Army Andrea Robinson said: "It went very well and we had people in before we were officially open.
"It was lovely and there were people there who had never been into the Salvation Army building."
Andrea and David Robinson moved to Driffield on Friday, July 20, and now hold the joint ministry at the Salvation Army, which is also their first appointment in the role.
The Salvation Army group is now preparing for its harvest supper, which will be held on Saturday, October 6.
