DS 2015


A large group of junior Development Squad players took part in our annual DG Summer Camp this week. The camp was held at Sport Wales National Centre on the 5th, 6th & 7th of August 2015. The players were put through their paces by 6 of our own top coaches, all who are involved in coaching our squad players on a regular basis. Nic and Carissa led the sessions over the week; putting the players through an exciting programme filled with a variety of sessions to physically and mentally challenge these young athletes.


The camp was thoroughly enjoyed by all and it was great to see so many young and enthusiastic badminton players taking to the court at such a high standard.


Eddie O'Neill, Badminton Wales CEO stated:


"This year’s camp was a great success with over 24 players attending. The coaches provided interesting and informative sessions each day which resulted in real quality work by the players. Well done to Carissa and Nic for writing the programme and Neil and Mo for valuable assistance. Very special thanks to Annette O Neill who attended her last DG camp and is stepping down as U13/15 and DG manager. Her contribution over many years has been priceless."


Next week the Junior Shuttle Camp takes place on Wednesday 12th and Thursday 13th August. There are still a few places available on the Thursday so if you’re interested in attending please contact Lucie Gwilt as soon as possible.
