Now’s the Time is really handy for me, with the times and locations they offer activities.

When I saw they offer Badminton, I contacted them to find out more. I hadn’t played for many years and didn’t want to join a club as I find them quite cliquey but they told me I was able to come and go as much as I wanted.

It has been fantastic and a great way of meeting new people which I have never really had the chance to do, getting home so late after work. It really does break up the week for me.

It helps I cycle which makes it easy to get to and from the activity.

I feel much fitter for it and I have definitely lost some weight around the waist.
