Training Camps - Europe
I am looking for training camps of good quality in Europe, for about 2 weeks, preferably in late August and early September. I am really trying to improve my game in order to get to the top. Any help is appreciated

How old are you and what's your level?
I might be able to arrange something in the Netherlands if you want to...

You can for example join our training. I don't know what the costs will be but bear in mind that the Netherlands is a way more expensive country then Portugal, and that the airline ticket alone will cost at minimum 200 euro's...

I'm 17 years old and I'm on the top level of Portugal, but don't know exactly my level in international standards. If you could give a bit more information about the local cost, it would be appreciated

The group we will be training with will be sub-top players in the Netherlands, mostly ranked top 100 on the national ranking.
The local costs depend on what I can do for you... If you would have to stay in a hotel for two weeks it would soon be 1000 euro's. Food isn't really that expensive (10 e a day approx).
It's kinda hard to let you stay at my place, since I live in several places in the Netherlands (alone, with parents sometimes, hard to explain).
If you could stay with me or with someone else I know you should figure the total costs to be around 700 euro for 2 weeks of training... Allinclusive that is, including ticket etc...

I see. I'm sorry to bother you, but where will be the trainings? And how many people do you expect to have there? Who are the coaches?
It's just important information in order to make decisions.

Trainer there is Gerald Kountul, the son of Leo Kountul, an indonesian who was the Dutch National Champion for several years. Gerald Kountul is a trainer specialised in training in small groups (at maximum 8 attendees). Training will focus on mainly technique, like footwork, racquet-technique and tactics. Monday will be singlestraining (morning+evening), Tuesday free training (morning) + free play (evening @ BC Amersfoort (2nd best club in NL, home of Yao Yi (ranked 19th in the world, and former club of Larissa Griga (UKR), Erik Pang (40th BWF), Dickey Palyama (51th BWF) and several more, wednesday doubles training (mo+ev), thursday free training (morning) + free play (evening@ BC Amersfoort), friday free training.
Free training means that the training subject will be decided later from what training and excercises your require the most.
Attendees will be several national-level BWF-ranked players in doubles and singles... Training will be 7 times a week, freeplay 2 times a week (twice a day except monday morning).
Trainings will take place in the venue: DLL Utrecht (which is located in Utrecht).

Note that I have to ask the trainer and the facility as well as having to look where you could stay. I don't yet know if I can make all the above true, but it would be how it would look like.
Can you tell me in return something more about your trainingbackground? Who were your trainers, what big tournaments did you attend to? Have you got any video's online (youtube) where you can bee seen playing (to asses your level of play).
Maybe (just an idea) we can organise like an exchange if you would be interested, you and for example your doubles partner come train at our place, then in return two or three of our players attend at your place for additional trainings (depending on the trainers you have etc).
