Stephen coaching George in Denmark

I am a Level 3 UKCC Badminton England Coach with 16+ years coaching experience. I have been Head coach at Harrow public school since 2004 and have spent the last 4 years embracing the Danish approach to coaching junior badminton. I am co-founder of the TheDKWay Danish residential summer camps with Carsten Jensen.

In 2014 I was honoured to be invited to be the first UK coach to coach at Superlejr, the largest premier badminton camp in Denmark for elite players. My overseas coaching experience also includes Malaysia and Hong Kong.

My vision is to provide the best environment for young players to thrive, and to achieve this, my sessions are fast-paced and dynamic, embracing the fun Danish style of junior training. I have consistently developed and guided young players to Bronze/Silver/Gold grades and medal successes at Junior Nationals.
