Several (Last time Nov 2019)
I have attended several courses now and would highly recommend. Paul and his team of coaches not only have a wealth of knowledge and experience but they are really helpful and approachable as well. I defy anyone to come away from a weekend without at least half a dozen things to try that will improve their game - sometimes just tiny little things that can make a really big difference, or a phrase or way of explaining something that gives you one of those lightbulb moments. I have really enjoyed the training and will definitely come again.

The experience was brilliant! In the space of 2 days a lot of lessons has been covered which is really beneficial for those who want to develop their technique and performance. The course made me aware of the bad habits which important in improving performance. I highly recommend the course. The venue Lilleshall was great. Excellent facility and accommodation. Paul and his team were amazing, very helpful and supportive. The team really pushed the attendees to improve themselves. They provided excellent coaching and feedback. I'm in the plan of attending another session in the future.
It's always a delight to coach players at Lilleshall. You made great progress over the weekend and i look forward to seeing you again in the future.

This is easily the best coaching I've had, it's a really in-depth couple of days and time very well spent. I've played for a number of years and knew some areas needed improvement but hadn't expected such a thorough step-by-step assessment of every aspect of my shot production. The course has really helped me think more about my games on court and to play 'smarter'....and, there has been some improvement...!!
No hesitation in recommending Paul's course and plan to attend again later this year.....

I just like to congratulate you both on the wonderful experience of being coached by your friendly, knowledgeable and approachable team. And personally like to thank you for the help I have received in improving my game.
Having not had any coaching before, this was a big eye opener for me as much of my game was bad habits, although I am a natural athlete and quite rapid around the court, I have found the tips picked up during the weekend have been hugely beneficial and find myself being quite mindful of my movements, which will only improve my game eventually.
Going back to my club I have found it quite difficult to put what I have learnt into match play, and can only emphasise the importance of practicing, allowing it to become a natural part of my game, giving time for my brain to adjust to this is ke y. Until it is all natural for me with regards new techniques (where practice will help), I will take your advice and just focus on one element, being net play or stance etc.
The weekend on a whole was a huge success and I would certainly recommend to anybody that is thinking of improving their game this programme. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience and I will certainly look at attending again in the near future.
Anthony, so pleased to see you have understood what this weekend is about. Working on one area in your game allows you to fine tune these skills in match play whilst still practicing others areas in readiness for a more focussed approach.

My friend and I attended the weekend course in June. We are very pleased to have learned a lot and we left with a good idea of what we need to do to improve our game and how to go about it.
Anyone considering taking part in one of these courses shouldn’t hesitate as it is definitely worth both your time and money. The coaches, venue, and accommodation were all really good.
I have attended a similar course in Milton Keynes however, in my opinion it was nowhere near as good as this one; this is proper training and not a few fancy drills to make you run around and get you tired. Most of us need to eat humble pie and get our basic skills sorted before progressing to more advanced stuff and this this course is perfect place to do it.
The guys at Lilleshall will quickly identify points which need to be improved and help you to readjust and improve. You will be left with solid foundation and tons of material to practice and get better. We shall be coming back in November. Thanks a lot Slav
Slav, it was a pleasure to spend coach you and your friend. There is always so much to learn in this game and I am delighted that you grasped the need to attend to basic skills in order to build a solid platform to move on to more advanced areas. Thanks for the review and I would be delighted to welcome you back to Lilleshall in the future.

It was a great 2-day course. The trainers were super helpful and gave clear instructions. It definitely improved my game. The whole thing was very well organized. Also, gotta say: The venue in Lilleshall was really beautiful. I didn't only learn a ton of good badminton stuff that weekend, but also managed to relax.

Attended the 2 day intermediate course and couldn’t be happier with the results that I came away with. From Start to finish Paul and his experienced team showed you all the “proper” way to play, making your weaker shots stronger, Correct footwork/Stance, Net shots and clearance shots. My game has improved so I need to get the practice in now. Thanks again to all involved. PS met some nice people to as everyone who attended are all there for the same reason.

I really enjoyed the course and learnt a great deal from it. The sessions were well-organised and I found them invaluable for getting the expert coaching on correct racquet grip, shot technique etc, along with suggestions to improve on-court positioning, footwork and movement.
The two days were fast-paced and went quickly. There was a lot of information to absorb in a short period of time, but everything was clearly demonstrated before we were then put through our paces. A big "Thank you" from me to Paul, Angie and the excellent coaches for a great badminton weekend. I highly recommend the course - easily 5-stars.
