I attended the Advance course in Summer 2017. The course was very well planned, and (I think) even further tailored to suit players needs and preference throughout the course. The coach team and the guest coach (esp. Stuart Preston and Stuart Wardell) were very conscientious, supportive, patient and clear in their instruction. It was my 4th time there and I would like to go again – I hope that says it all.

Many thanks for your kind review. As always, it's a pleasure to see you and see how much your game has progressed. I enjoy all of my courses as they offer different elements to players. The advanced is definitely the most tailored as players send in their topics ahead of the course. To attend this course, a player must be competent at the basics and isn't it amazing how many do not meet this level.

2018 will see changes in the program as my thinking in many areas of the game continues to evolve.

Great course

Ideal course for anyone who would like to improve their badminton game, regardless of their age or ability.It was a well organised and structured course and it was quite amazing to see the improvements in players.

The weekend course was well structured and yet adjusted to the needs of the attendees. Thanks to Paul and his team for the effort they put in - certainly benefited my game.

Coaching Weekend July 2017

The course I attended met my expectations and more. The facilities were great and were set in a modern sports hall with 8 courts available. The coaching provided by Paul was well structured and broke down all the key components of play. The assistant coaches were also of a very high standard and were ably supported by Angie. In short, if you are serious about improving your game then look no further as this is the course for you. Thanks again.

It was a pleasure to spend the weekend coaching you.

Enjoyable and Great Badminton Coaching Weekend

I thoroughly enjoyed and learnt a great deal from the badminton weekend. It was worthwhile to get expert coaching to analyse and correct my own grip, hitting, position, movement and footwork.The two days was fast paced and went quickly. There is a lot of information to digest in a short period and as Paul pointed out, it is important to get your techniques right so when you return back home then you can practise in the correct manner.I highly recommend the course and I plan to attend again, hopefully with a much improved level of skill that I learnt from my weekend.Thanks again for Paul, Angie and the rest of the coaching team for a great badminton experience.

great badminton course

What a fabulous coaching course! I attended the intermediate coaching weekend in April 2017 and it definitely met my expectations, you come away from the course with so much knowledge, new tips and skills! Great facilities and coaches.The course was well structured and had amazing coaches with Paul, Stewart and Ross on hand giving helpful advice. Just the slightest change can make a big difference to the shots you play. I have come away from this course after 20+ years playing badminton with a different attitude in the way I position myself and keen now to take the new skills on board to develop my game further.

Thank you Sandra. I'll be expecting to see these improvements creeping onto your game over the next few months.

Coaching weekend April 2017

I attended the intermediate coaching weekend with Paul and his team and what a worthwhile experience it was. Each skill was broken down effectively and although it seemed like a lot of information in one weekend it was taught very well. The team were excellent helpers providing helpful advice at each point but it was also relaxed and lots of fun. Would recommend to anyone looking to improve their game. I most certainly feel like the knowledge I have taken away will improve my game over the coming months

Intermediate Coaching weekend 04/2017

I really enjoyed the coaching weekend and would recommend it to anyone who is looking improve their badminton seriously. By breaking down and dissecting all the common shots to the very basic components and building back up from that, everyone went home with better technique and form to start working from. Paul, Ross and Stuart has incredibly keen eyes (and ears) with an amazing ability to spot just what is wrong with your technique and then help to correct accordingly. I also learnt to think and analyse positioning and aspects of the game that I had not done before (watching youtube matches now is a different experience). A core component of the weekend for me that made this course special is the incredibly positive attitude of all the participants. Everyone had one thing in common no matter their ability - the eagerness to learn and improve, and not just for themselves but also for each other. Learning how to practice and correcting each other is definitely something everyone can take back to their clubs.Will be keen to get a sneak preview on what the advanced course entails!
