Stephen Davies, a member of Flint Phoenix Badminton Club which plays at Holywell High School, has had a very busy summer.
He recently represented Wales in the Special Olympics Summer Games in Sheffield where he won a silver medal in the men’s singles and then a fourth place in the men’s doubles.
He continued his winning streak by representing Wales in the Four Nations Para Badminton Championships in Cardiff winning gold in the men’s singles and silver in the men’s doubles.
Stephen currently trains at Holywell High School with Coach Derek Harvey and former Welsh International Matthew Sprake.
Everyone at Flint Phoenix is extremely proud of Stephen’s latest achievements and wishes him every success during the forthcoming season.
Fancy a game of badminton? The club plays every Thursday at 7.30pm and the first session is free!
Since Holywell Leisure Centre (HLC-CHT) became a charitable entity back in April, the centre has been going from strength to strength. Most notable changes are the recent building work to the reception area, and the revamp of a tired meeting room into a family friendly soft play area.
After months in the making, our front of house reception and meeting room is finally getting transformed into more user friendly spaces. Whilst the reception desk is undergoing a well over due makeover, the meeting room is being turned into a family zone, with a soft play area for babies/toddlers.
Here’s a glimpse at how our reception area will look…
Holywell Leisure Centre is now owned by the community that run it. Lots of exciting changes are happening so keep checking in to find out more!
All customers need to apply for a free membership card, which replaces the council run Actif scheme. It still entitles you to 30% off but can only be used in Holywell.
Application forms are available on reception.
