Is there anything in the UK? I am nowhere near this standard but want to do some kind of course based in the UK, I am a mediocre club player
The only thing outside which would be a good idea is the academy in Copenhagen (I think) which players like Bobby Milroy attend, it takes players from all over the world but you have to be supported by your association, again I am not sure about the process.
You can do 1 month, 6 months or a year. Quite pricey though, around £800 for a month excluding accomodation and food etc, they can help you find a place though.

Oh well Martin Dew was right I have bugger all chance of getting in then!
Why don't you get in touch with the IBF, based in England somewhere or even the BA of E should run courses in Milton Keynes, at the very least they should be able to give you pointers on where to get the suitable training you need.
Better phone as they don't always reply to e-mails
What about LJB, has he any plans to do courses this year?

There is also a course run by Dan Travers in the Sports Scotland centre in Inverclyde during the summer for a week and costs about £350 for residential.
Since he is one of the best in Scotland you might want to phone and get some info about the standards, but I think you may be above the majority in attendance.

It would be really cool if we people at BC/BF can make a Badminton Camp or something like that (Summer Camp ?). Like.....we can find some place, and live there for about 3 weeks long....and all we do everyday is BBQ and Badminton !
Cost......would probably be somewhere around $2000 USD or so I guess But it will be FUN!!

However, it will be fun, until we receive our credit card bills...

You can try the Prakash Padukone Badminton Academy in India. It's run by one of India's greatest badminton player and trains AE winner Gopi Chand and current India's ladies champion Aparna Popat.
More info available at http://www.padukoneacademy.com
There's is also Lee Jae Bok academy (http://www.liba.co.kr) in Korea although he has one setup in the UK.
There are also various academies in Malaysia but I have no info on these. Maybe Ants or Wilfredf or Joanne can help here.

Well that's the odd thing about the LJB academy, one of our members was his assistant last time he ran one (can't remember his name but it was in a thread about a grip) and I'm sure he said there was no plans for any this year but in a competition I played at the weekend one of my friends was offered a place on a 2 day course but he haad to decline because it was during his exams at uni!
Does anyone have any info on the LJB camps in the UK this year?
04-20-2004, 04:15 AM #12
I have heard no real information about him running courses this year like he did last, however he told me he IS going to spend more time over here and therefore will run more courses. I think there is a weekend one coming up in May, you'll have to email Tom Marrs about it all (managain director).
I'm good friends with Lee, so you got any questions then please ask. I'm possibly touring with him once i come back from a training camp, so i may see you around.

Met with Lee again last week, he has no plans for similar sessions like last year in Norwich and Bolton, he's been here on and off to fulfil previous planned commitments.
Lee Young Sook is his head coach in the UK and they are trying to operate an LJB academy here. They are looking to take on groups of up to 8 players per county to train them for 4 x 2 hours per month. This is already in operation in some counties.

You're from England, right? Why don't you explain your situation to your national badminton association and ask them if they could get you in touch with Rexy Mainaky. He's still there, right?
I'm sure Rexy would have tons of connections in Indonesia. If you can't get in touch with him, write to your national association for help.
Hope that helps a tiny bit
