BE Regional project on Faroe Islands

Faroe Island, Iceland and Greenland have started a new initiative where the aim is to bring talented players and trainers from these three countries together so they can learn from each other and work together to lift the level of badminton in the region. The initiative has been accepted as part of Badminton Europe regional program with Faroe Island as the organiser.

The first activity in this initiative was held in the Icelantic capital Reykjavik in October 2009. This year the second activity has just been concluded in Faroe Island. This was a joint players and coaches camp – with the participation of players and coaches from each country. The players were in agegroup U13, U15 and U17. At the end of the camp all players participated in an open tournament with other young players from the host country – this was a good way to test the new learned skills and to meet players from other countries in competition.

Again this year Bjarne Nielsen from TopDirect Danish Badminton Academy in Hillerød, Denmark was selected as head coach for the camp.
