Regional Camp in Aire sur la lys, France
19 - 23 August 2013


The U15 elite single players from France, England, Germany and the Netherlands (main picture) had a high quality and intensive 5-day training camp in the north of France. The hall was entirely dedicated to badminton with all the facilities inside (carpets, power room, lunch provided). 

The 12 girls and 12 boys had individual sessions, match play sessions and a team tournament to end the week. Just after the World Championships 2013 they had the opportunity to watch some of the best matches from China and to study the difference between youth games and the world's best players. Going back on court they tried to develope what they miss to reach the top level, especially the conduct of the rally and the overall tactical awereness of modern badminton and how it will possibly change in the future. 

Sharing experiences between the coaches and having the opportunity to practise with different style of play should help them to catch the final goal: bringing more European players to be successful at Olympic Games and World Championships.
