Certificated Training Centres

Elite-level development from Badminton Europe

Badminton Europe announced in 2009 two new initiatives to help increase the level of elite badminton players in Europe.

To establish a network of Badminton Europe Certificated Training Centres.

To award scholarships to players to enable them to stay at Certificated Training Centres. Scholarships are for players who have the potential to qualify for future World Championships and the 2020 Olympic Games

By attaining the status of a Badminton Europe Certificated Training Centre the following criteria are warranted:

  • the venue is dedicated for national team training

  • a group of players that can compete at European level
  • there is training of the national team at least 5 times per week
  • high class experts are affiliated to the centre

  • other facilities, like gym, are available

  • there is organisational staff to facilitate the proper training environment

to be willing to accept players on conditions agreed in advance between the Certified Training Centre and Badminton Europe
