coaching in uk
Trying to find a good coach in the milton keynes area. If anyone has any experience of coaches near or in milton keynes in the uk I'd be very grateful to hear about it.

You've got to be kidding right? Milton Keynes is the home of the Badminton Association of England - it is FULL of badminton coaches.
Just call them up or go to baofe.co.uk (or is it .org?) and there is a long long list.

I know, I play at the National Badminton Centre. I have a mate who has a coach but he is always fully booked. And I have tried looking on the BAofE site but can't find the list you mentioned. I initially looked in the coaching section (seemed sensible) but it seemed to be geared towards encouraging people to become a coach.
I even mailed them (before my initial post on here) but haven't heard back.

So you train at the National badminton centre but do not have a coach?
Just ask around at the centre...

The BA of E have a block about returning e-mails
You need to phone them and ask them to fax you a list of coaches as per your financial requirements

By far your best bet for quality coaching is Manfred Tripp. He is a moody git but he's as good as they come. Just communicate to him through your training that you are willing to work hard and you will be in. PM me if you want more info.

Just to sort this out someone dug up this thread, it's an old one. I am now coached by Sara Sankey who I rate as first class.
Slanter - I was watching Mani play in a tournament yesterday. Are you coached by him?

Nah, but I've seen him work. He's good. But very grumpy.

They will be in the Cockburn centre in the south side of Glasgow from 10.00am - 5.00pm both days and if you're lucky you might even get time off for lunch
