    Default Training

    Where will you be in the US?

    USA is quite big. If you're coming to San Francisco Bay Area, maybe I can suggest some place.

    Also, if you're training for badminton, why not go to Denmark or Asian country like China, Malaysia or Indonesia?

    If SoCal, SGVBC or OCBC.

    Also, what are you looking for? Please ask some specific questions, then we can answer.

    Interesting - why choose America for training?

    There are more renown countries for training probably based on the amount of ex players or time dedicated to training vs financial outlay like china or Malaysia.

    Is it becasue of a move to the states for some short term reason or is it your choice to train in the US?

    P.S. This is not a dig at badminton coaching in the US or the level of play, just in case anyone takes it that way.

    i think you might be better off training in UK or Denmark (if Asia is too far). but if you'll be moving/visiting the US anyway then i suggest go to the West Coast (LA or Bay Area) mainly because of their dedicated badminton facilities. i provided some of the links below. those are the ones that i know .... there are definitely more clubs.

    good luck.

    True, that's going to be arguably the best place to train but it will be rather expensive. The best bang for the buck option is arranging a long term training plan at SGVBC.

    If you need any help or additional info, you can PM me and I can get you in touch with SGVBC.
