Badminton Coaching To Help You To Win More Points & More Games

Advanced Badminton Coach

I created this blog in 2009 to share my passion and knowledge of badminton.

As an Advanced International Badminton Coach, I mainly help players on a one to one basis (mainly across Cheshire and Manchester), via my online membership program and at my UK weekend residential courses (where I regularly have players flying in from aboard). I also receive invitations to coach players abroad and am happy to travel.

As well as badminton coaching tactics, strategy, hints & tips, I publish badminton racket reviews. These reviews offer my personal opinion of a racket based on look, feel, overhead performance, defence and net play. It is important to note that against some people’s beliefs, my reviews are my own, and not bias towards any brand. I always recommend that players test rackets for themselves when ever possible.

I am sponsored by Victor and helped establish their Ambassador program in the UK, enabling players across the country to ‘try before they buy’. I also attend the All England tournament each year, heading up Victor’s stringing team.

UK Residential Badminton Weekend Course Testimonials

I attended this course with trepidation as I had no previous formal badminton training.
The whole weekend was very well planned, organised and executed -a real tribute to all concerned including Angie, Paul and the coaches…
…All the skills taught were broken down into easy to practise steps: demonstrated by Paul,time given for practice watched over by the coaches, until finally being put together as a whole. Brilliant for those who want to improve their play.
Sue - May 2014
Just want to thank Paul, Angie, Dom, Tom and Stuart for a really informative and enjoyable weekend. The weekend was set up really well, and don’t think I could fault it! You always had someone close by giving you coaching tips on the specific drill, and tweaking certain things to bring out the best in your game. I would 100% recommend these weekends to anyone, I can’t thank you enough Paul and all the others, and I look forward to booking the next one!
Dom - March 2016
Simply brilliant. I thoroughly enjoyed my coaching weekend with Paul and his team, i have come away with some immediate improvements, and much to think about and try, try, try! My expectation for this course was to iron out some of the habits i have picked up over the years, and improve some aspects of my game where i knew i was weaker; it did that and much more. Pauls ability to dissect my game, show where faults lie and how to improve them instantly was quite incredible. And of course trying some new moves on court which i have never considered. Paul was also keen to push you that bit further where he could, allowing you to gain as much out of the weekend as possible.
Colin - May 2016
Just want to thank Paul, Angie, Stuart, Tom, Dom & co for providing a fantastic badminton-training weekend. The team effort is clearly visible under Paul’s leadership. Well structured yet flexible and constantly adapting to the needs of the group. Despite my many years of badminton experience, it was refreshing to attend the course as so much to learn including on how to grip! The passion, enthusiasm, zeal and patience of the coaches were immense. Infact Paul comes to pub later in the evening and continues to share badminton experience! I also feel the plus point to the course is video library where in we can continue hone skills after the course!The organisation including food, stay was extremely good. Angie does take good care of the participants. I don’t have any hesitation in recommending this course.
