Purbeck Sports Centre's facelift is now finished but the improvements are more than just skin-deep.

The main sports hall was repainted thanks to funding from Badminton England to help increase the number of people playing the fast-paced sport regularly.

The new blue colour in the hall means that players can now easily spot the speeding white shuttle as it flies over the court during matches.

Badminton England Participation Manager Roisin O'Rorke explained "We were pleased to contribute £9,000 to this project because we recognise the potential for Purbeck Sports Centre to further develop its PlayBadminton framework.

"The centre is committed to enhancing badminton in the area and already run successful No Strings Badminton sessions and Essentials courses for the local badminton community".
