    Hi, everyone..I'm kinda new here and am an intermediate badminton player looking for a 1 on 1 coach.Firstly, i would like to say that i live in singapore(just to make sure) and that if any of u guys or gals are coaching pls give me ur contact and the fees per/h or anything like that.Anyway im 14years old.

    Can anyone help me give me the average prices of 1 on 1 coaching?U can give me links also which could help.The reason for me trying to find a coach is that i have tried joining groups but they were just not effective.So,for this im looking for a good coach.U can drop by and give messages or recomend me good coaches while giving me their contacts or email adresses.Thank You.

    Theres is this coach in the west area, his name is Eng Han. I got to check if he do 1 to 1 coaching. He gives group coaching every sat from 1pm to 5pm at Assumptions English School. Not so sure about other days. In the north there is a coach from the Bishan badminton group if i'm not wrong.

    1 on 1 good coach does not come cheap

    1 on 1 good coach does not come cheap

    From what i know Eng Han charge 80 dollars 1 hour.
    If 4 people in group, it will be divided by 4.

    I think other good coach around $70 as well, maybe not so famous ones
    may be slightly less. Not likely 1-1 good coach will cost $20-30 range unless it is your friend.

    Group coaching not effective? I think your coach is not effective. Not that group coaching is not effective. 1 to 1 coaching is very good to build up basics fast. But more advanced coaching requires you to be in groups. Especially when you're trying to pull up your game play to the next level. Unless ofcourse your coach is better than you are and can spar you feeding style to lead your game play to how it should be.
