ATHLETE’S VIEW

I have been training at EBA for around three years now — it has been a wonderful experience.

Attending coaching sessions has been super beneficial to my all-round game and has helped me develop my core techniques greatly.

The enjoyable sessions and friendships I have formed at EBA has made badminton such a pleasurable and exciting sport for me”

PARENT’S VIEW

“In our opinion, EBA has managed to find the right balance for Deepti between the intensity of training and competition versus the pure joy of playing the game.

She is an emotional and hugely determined player and Greg and his team have helped channel her ambition with very successful results so far.”
