Intermediate Course June 2018

Paul’s badminton weekend was an invaluable deconstruction of technique and tactics on the court. I found Paul’s coaching method be to extremely effective and I am continuing to implement improvements in my game by reference to what I picked up over the course of the two days.

Intermediate Course April 2018

I have to say this course blew me away with just how good it was. From start to finish I could tell a lot of thought and experience had been put into the whole weekend, it couldn't have been structured any better.There was a lot of coaching packed into one weekend, however it never felt rushed or forced. Everything flowed from one lesson to the next. Each shot clearly demonstrated by Paul, and explanations on why shots were played in a certain way, both to improve the shot itself and tactically i.e. disguising direction till the last possible second.As well as Paul there were three other fantastic coaches, who were all excellent in pointing out where my technique was not quite correct and how to correct it. As there were four sets of eyes watching, I always knew if I was doing something wrong someone would be there to explain and show me how to fix it.I can't honestly see how anyone could not make massive steps forward in their game after this weekend (assuming the put they effort in training after the course). Coming away from the weekend, I feel I have the tools and knowledge to greatly improve my all round game.

I thoroughly enjoyed the weekend - the venue and coaching were first class and I was literally bowled over by how friendly everyone was. I had initially been concerned that my badminton skills would not be good enough - but the coaches cater for a wide range of abilities and I learned a huge amount in a short time. I fully intend to attend another course in the very near future.

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.
