Badminton Wales’ association with Cardiff Metropolitan
University stems back over a considerable few years having worked closely with
Dr Mike Hughes who shaped our physiological support. Dr Mike Hughes’s
experience and expertise has been shaped through his continued work with
Badminton England where he has guided their performance team on physiological
testing and protocol.
In addition to Dr Mikes Hughes’s expertise over the past
year Badminton Wales has forged a partnership within the Strength and
Conditioning department where our Regional Academy players have had access to
brand new state of the art facilities and expertise coaching from Tom Mathews
and Jason Pedeley.
development of children is essential to allow them to succeed in which ever
sport(s) they choose to pursue. Strength and conditioning training gives
children the physical qualities and competencies that allows them to execute
sport specific skills effectively, explosively and with minimal risk of injury.
At Cardiff Metropolitan University we specialise in youth athletic development
from a research and application perspective. Our programme is underpinned by
the latest scientific research into long-term athlete development meaning the
junior players form Badminton Wales are treated as such, with age appropriate
training programmes targeting all elements of athletic motor development. As a
result, the players are better equipped to perform the skills and training
loads required to succeed on court and more robust against the risk of injury
that is inherent with participation in any sport." Jason Pedley | MSc FHEA
The provision provided by Cardiff Met has been vital to our
players continued development, focusing on more of the power aspects of S&C
