Shuttle Time Trainer Course

Posted by Matt Hughes at 11:02 on 7 February 2017

Badminton Wales recently had the privilege of hosting a Shuttle Time Trainers Course lead by Badminton Europe’s Development Manager Jerone van Dijk and Shuttle Time Trainer Tom Causer. The course was held over two and a half days at Sport Wales National Centre in Cardiff with coaches attending from all around Europe; Sweden, Portugal, Hungary, Norway, Ireland, Slovakia, France and Wales. The course provided incredible insight to how Shuttle Time is transforming the development of badminton worldwide.


The course provided three Welsh coaches (Donal O’Halloran, Andy Stewart and Matthew Hughes) the opportunity to complete the highest Shuttle Time grading to become certified Trainers. Badminton Wales are now fully resourced to deliver the full Shuttle Time program to potential tutors, teachers and club coaches; across Wales.

Badminton Wales will now be looking to build on its initial success of piloting a ten-week Shuttle Time course and delivering a one day tutors course to twenty school teachers in North Wales we are now able to engage schools and clubs into the Shuttle Time program nationally.

Badminton Wale would like to thank Badminton Europe for selecting Wales to host the course and to all the coaches who attended.
